Antonio Sanchez shows his astounding technical mastery and exquisite musicianship in this educational and enlightening session for the Hudson MusicMaster Series. Nearly three hours of footage, including performance and discussion segments, highlight the wide range of skills that have made Antonio one of the most in-demand jazz drummers on the scene today.
Playing selections from The Pat Metheny Group, along with compositions by Chick Corea and Antonio himself, Sanchez covers technical, musical, and philosophical points that apply to drummers of all styles.
Topics Include: practicing, hand technique, motivic development, left- foot clave, playing stylistically, developing independence, finding your own voice, soloing ideas, odd-meter clave, recording with the Pat Metheny group, professionalism, and the importance of having the right attitude. Antonio takes these advanced concepts and explains his personal approach to each.
In an intimate master-class setting, Antonio displays his versatile musical skills in the context of challenging songs and incredible solo segments, performing both on his smaller traditional jazz set up, and his larger Pat Metheny kit. This DVD goes beyond simple exercises, and presents musical concepts that apply to serious drum students of all levels!
