Herlin Riley's A Gem !
Dutchman | Florida,USA | 09/29/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Herlin Riley gives a great performance and instruction in the old style of playing, and leads up to the newer styles. Highly recommended..
Nicholas Payton is on trumpet but seems to be having a bad day, as does the piano player who hits clams on "High Society". The trio plays better on "Oh Didn't He Ramble". However the focus is on the drumming and thats what counts.
Johnny Vidacovich gives a fine performance and instruction as well.
I have not gotten to the last two drummers ( Earl Palmer and Herman Ernest) but would recommend the DVD on just the first two gents alone.
If you want to learn New Orleans style drumming, this is the best DVD I have seen so far. The companion book to this DVD is very good and highly recommended as well."
