Format: Sheet music Verified Purchase
A book of advanced exercises for drummers of any genre to consider and work on (please don't be put off by the title! These exercises will benefit any drummers willing to put the time in to unlock their benefits).
Each exercise has been taken from John Riley's collection of articles to such magazines as ModernDrummer, and each one features a well-written explanation of how to practice it and how it will benefit you musically as well as any illustrations that may run alongside it.
If you're new to the world of jazz drumming or feel you might need a bit more of a primer before facing more advanced material such as this, I highly recommend spending some time with John Riley's other books "The Art of Bop Drumming" and "Beyond Bop Drumming", both books are invaluable to understanding jazz playing technically and more importantly, musically.

A Great Book 4 Nov. 2006
By Lecordier Patrick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Sheet music
The Jazz Drummer's Workshop is indoubtedly a great addition to John Riley's former books. Although it is not intended for beginners, those with a limited knowledge about jazz drumming can take a great advantage of the book. It is written in a very pedagogical way. The playing of Elvin Jones, Tony Williams, Billy Higgins and Philly Joe Jones is clearly analysed and explained. The author deals with concepts like Time, groove, soloing, second line, etc. Many examples are demonstrated and explained. The final chapter about technique is also particularly interesting and useful. Following John Riley's advice can really trigger the aspirant jazz drummer's musical development.

Continuing Education for the Jazz Drummer 26 Mar. 2007
By fatmorgan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Sheet music
Anyone who's worked through an introductory text on jazz drumming, and gained some level of proficiency, will reap much from this book. It would challenge the intermediate as well as the advanced drummer (I believe, I'm not so advanced). The book takes previously understood concepts, and then views them in the playing of some of the Greats with explanations of exactly what was occurring behind the drum kit. Additionally, Riley offers more chop-building options for the drummer that is looking for additions to rudiments and other warm-up exercises. This book is EXACTLY what the title states: a "Workshop" for the jazz drummer, and it's an essential addition to any jazz drumming library.

Excellent compilation 14 Dec. 2005
By Giuseppe Bianco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Sheet music
John Riley is an excellent writer and instructor, and his last work makes no exception. In depth analysis of masters' drumming (Roach, Higgins, Elvin Jones, Philly Joe Jones, Williams), odd times comping and soloing, basic snare drum training routines, and much more. This book really is the ideal companion to Riley's first two books, and I warmly recommend it to every serious jazz drummer.

Riley is a genious 19 July 2006
By Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Sheet music
There really is nothing more to say. Everything he says is important and should be taken seriously. Regardless of what genre of music you play, all of the exercises in this book (along with his previous two, and all of his recent articles in modern drummer) will open your mind to infinite musical directions. If you value your technical ability, hell if you value playing good music at all, you will find everything you can find from John Riley and work through it for the rest of your life.

Interesting topics & exercises for every jazz drummer 7 May 2007
By F. Brinke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Sheet music
This book really hits some difficult yet essential topics like how to create and maintain happening swing within a band, how to integrate non-jazz influences in your playing and tips for uptempo comping. Definetely for the advanced jazzdrummer, but accessible for everyone because of the clear and analysing texts that are a joy to read! A must have for those seeking to improve towards professionality. Enjoy!
