In another classic and historical project, Bill Lee introduces the world to drummers. He describes them as "the principal music maker." Men who have "always made great contributions to the music effort of any group during all the eras of jazz." The work includes an introduction penned by Clem DeRosa, a professional musician and educator who has invested over 50 years in the journey of music. In six sections he covers the spectrum: / The Early Jazz Drummers / Drummers During Bebop and Beyond / Utility Percussion Players / Vibes Players / New Faces Behind Drum Sets and Other Percussion Instruments Lee's work is unlike any other. It includes several quotes from jazz contributors and recommended CDs for readers to indulge in. Once again, he delivers developed and dazzling scholarship in this new addition.
