Here is a lovely piece for drumset written by the great Max Roach. A young student of mine is seen performing it for the first time here. We had spent time going through it and here is his first pass. He is way better now of course. If you listen carefully I can be heard turning pages.
The drum also waltzes, by Max Roach.

Very nice. Eleven years old...I think I was still trying to learn a C chord on guitar at that age.

I was a big Clifford Brown fan years ago. I got into some of his albums with Max Roach. Two supremely talented guys. Still makes me sad to think about Clifford sometimes, but then I could say that about so many of the old time jazz greats.

Good luck to your young student.
