Jazz Essentials II Drum Tracks: When we decided to do another jazz release, we knew we should do it differently than our other discs. We knew that doing a "loops only" CD would be somewhat limiting, given the nature of the genre.
So, we decided to do a true jazz sample CD with FULL DRUM TAKES and NO LOOPS! From every roll and cymbal nuance on the disc comes the beauty of that truly unique sound of jazz - live, spontaneous, and human.
The tracks should give you plenty to work with and, if you want even more, fire up your audio editor and get cutting. Countless loops await you loopaholics out there!
Remember: Jazz Essentials II is all drum tracks and not loops. There are three sessions on the DVD which are entirely compatible with each other.
Enjoy the swinging grooves!
We took a decidely different approach for the next installment in the Jazz Essentials Series. This collection of jazz drum tracks offers full live takes of essential jazz drumming styles in a wide range of tempos and styles.
You get the full takes, with 100% live jazz drum tracks lasting from 3-12 minutes in performance length. Due to the nature of this genre, we wanted to go with the live feel and not relegate great playing and phrasing to a collection of one, two, or four bar jazz loops. Each track begins with basic timekeeping and continues to build in complexity and intensity - adding complex syncopations and usable jazz phrasings. It's easy to grab a few bars of the phrases you need or use the tracks "as is" to play along and build improvisational skills.
Perfect for playing along or for grabbing just the bars you need. An absolute wealth of traditional jazz drum tracks, played with impeccable taste and time. Without question, an exhaustive resource covering a wide range of popular jazz playing styles and tempos.
Jazz Essentials II offers users nearly 2.1 GB of live jazz drum tracks, divided into three easy-to-use categories:
SESSION A - Traditional Jazz Drums 60-120 BPM
SESSION B - Traditional Jazz Drum 135-200 BPM
SESSION C - Latin Jazz, 3/4 Jazz, Blues/Jazz Swing Drums
We let the tape roll and captured it all - all the swing you crave as well as the warmth of a maple Gretsch drumset to deliver a versatile resource of jazz and jazz-latin drumming and grooves. All tempos offer a dedicated groove section - from basic time-keeping to the "let loose" syncopations of the genre as well as a dedicated fills sections, complete with intros, pick-ups, and endings. And, to round out the disc's versatility, we've included a matching set of multi-velocity drum and cymbal samples from the kit used in recording the loops.
So, whether you want to play along and hone your chops comping with the full source tracks or dig out your audio editor and construct your next jazz project with loops, the rhythmic possibilities of Jazz Essentials II are limitless. It will quickly become an indispensable compositional tool in any jazz musician's sample library.
Available in 16-bit, 24-bit ACIDized WAV and APPLE LOOPS.
