An Exercise for Drumset: Pass The Bembé Bell

Just an exercise of sorts to share. This exercise involves the african bell pattern known as “the standard pattern” or, via cuba, the bembé bell pattern using a bass drum, hi hat, snare drum with brushes, and a metronome set to 35. Hi hat always plays “2 & 4.”

Another tune written for Monthly Meeting for the December session of 2009. The original recording featured John Swana on EVI, Brian Howell on bass, Jon Coyle (son step) on rhodes, and myself on drums. Hear it here.

Play-Along / Ens. Rep: Trombone, Electric Piano, Drumset – Odd Meter

Sideways Tenor Clef

Micro IV is one of a few shorts pieces for trombone, electric piano, and the option to add drums. It was written for the April 2010 Monthly Meeting session with Matt Mitchell and Ben Gerstein here at musiccreative.org. 

The trombone part is very sparse but challenging none the less. Mp3’s have a 4 quarter note count off.
