Brush Artistry by Philly Joe Jones
« on: April 09, 2009, 10:09 PM »
Greetings all,

It's housewarming time in my new corner here @ the Drummer Cafe and I have a gift for YOU that's too good to pass up.

Brush Artistry by Philly Joe Jones is a long out-of-print classic. It was the first and probably, until Ed Thigpen put out his first book, only available text on the art of brushwork for many years.

I have a treasured copy myself and was smart enough twenty five years ago to go through the entire book in my studies with Jeff Hamilton when I lived in Los Angeles. It reflects Philly Joe's class, wit and sense of style, and the patterns are super-cool! Dig also the endorsements from Elvin Jones, Kenny Clarke, Max Roach, and renowned British drummer Tony Kinsey (the book was published by Premier).

Here is the link:

Fortunately the scans are in color, preserving the original look of the book. This is particularly helpful when studying the diagrams.

Enjoy a piece of history and learn from one of the masters!
