Covering a wide spectrum of technical and musical concepts and offering a fresh perspective on the state of contemporary drumming, The Big Picture: Phrasing, Improvisation, Style & Technique (Hudson Music) is an exciting, new educational DVD by acclaimed drum artist Keith Carlock.
The two-disc set features demonstrations, discussions and detailed dissections of the drummerâ€™s spectacular timekeeping with a host of world-class musicians from mainstream pop icons Steely Dan, James Taylor and Sting to progressive fusion masters Oz Noy, Rudder and the Wayne Krantz Trio. During the course of the four-hour program, Keith displays the chops that have allowed him to take on these high-profile yet diverse playing situationsâ€”and top the Pop, Fusion, All-Around and Studio categories of the major drum magazinesâ€™ Readers Pollsâ€”while sharing the knowledge that will allow viewers to become better drummers and more complete musicians themselves.
The Big Picture was filmed in front of a live studio/master class audience that elicited insightful, in-depth answers to questions on topics such as hand, foot and finger technique; grooving, fills and soloing; and phrasing, interpretation and improvisation. Additional Q&A segments cover the rich musical background and variety of influences that were instrumental in the development of Keithâ€™s fluid, versatile, multi-dimensional drumming style. The projectâ€™s performance highlights include an open drum solo and playing to pre-recorded Oz Noy and Rudder tracks as well as an unprecedented four-song set and clinic with Wayne Krantz (guitar) and Tim Lefebvre (bass).
The content also includes a viewable/printable, 29-page, eBook with transcriptions of many drum patterns and exercises plus an exclusive, easy to use, on-screen Video-PDF submenu; further enhancing its educational value. Other features include Hudsonâ€™s crystal-clear digital video, super-high fidelity PCM stereo audio and multiple camera angles. With its wide range of subject matter and comprehensive coverage, The Big Picture provides a thorough view of Carlockâ€™s advanced approach to modern drumming as well as an overview of the fundamental skills that every drummer needs to play a full range of modern music.
