Definitely a "must have" for Those Wanting to Play Brushes
W. Dent | Baltimore, MD | 11/27/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Short and sweet....these gentlemen have put together all one will need to know if one wants to play with brushes. Each drummer is shown playing the traditional styles and tempos where brushes can be used. The camera angles and questions asked after each has played really cover the ground completely. You can then practice the techniques you have just been shown immediately after watching. Each technique is just so well illustrated, I can't imagine a better way to be introduced to brushes. This is good for beginners to intermediate players."
Brushes 101!

"If you want to know how to use brushes and get to grips with a musical approach this is for you.
Steve and Adam host the DVD and share insights and experience with the elders of the art.
The extras videos of some of the great "old guard" players is great, and the duet of "Salt Peanuts with Jeff Hamilton is great and will make you laugh."
If you love brushes and jazz drumming, go on !!!

"What a great pleasure to play with brushes and to see these "old" drummers explain to us how to play jazz and swing, it is really a happiness and a joy to see them, sharing their love for the music and jazz. Every drummer should have this wonderful DVD, it should be obligatory and required for all the drummers and others musicians !!! A big thank for Steve SMITH, Adam NUSBAUM and HUDSON Music, they are so talented ! Really buy this DVD you won't regret, Emilio (from France)."
A must have for straight ahead drummers
Truth Seeker | Sterling, VA | 04/26/2009

"It's not often that a product that you can't test first blows one away. But this is definitely one of them. The main take away is that playing with brushes has all to do with individual tastes and desires for producing a pleasing sound. Playing jazz with brushes offers a multitude of expression. This package clearly demonstrates that fact with some of the best in the business. And with the play-along CD, you can experiment with some of the techniques picked up from the masters on the DVDs. Don't expect to get much explanation from these guys. They just do what they do and you will need to learn by listening and watching what they do. Often times, they can't adequately put into words what they are doing. It's like someone asking you to explain how you breathe. You just do! This product is highly recommended for the jazz drummer who is young, old, neophyte, or expert."
