It's All About the Rhythm (Section): The Key to Jazz Ensemble Success

  • thumbnail for Jerry Tolson
  • The rhythmic feel is the most important element of jazz. The integrated effort of the rhythm section in establishing the rhythmic feel, i.e. "creating the groove," is one of the most crucial elements of a successful jazz performance. This session demonstrates rhythm section techniques that address crucial elements of "groove" and style in authentic jazz performance.
