Todd Bishop of the Cruise Ship Drummer blog puts out a high volume of interesting, valuable and varied drum set lessons and exercises. I like to show my support by buying the stuff he’s got for sale like his books and records.
It’s come to my attention that Todd’s latest album, Travelogue, is out so I thought I’d give it a mention here. I haven’t had a chance to listen to it yet but you can preview it on the record label’s site or at the Amazon MP3 music store where you can also buy it.
From the label’s site:
Portland drummer Todd Bishop follows up on his collection of rarely performed Ornette Coleman compositions, 2012’s “Little Played Little Bird,” with an album of mostly original music, again featuring the great Brazilian pianist, Jasnam Daya Singh (until now known as Weber Iago), Seattle saxophonist Richard Cole, this time performing on several woodwinds, and Portland bassist Chris Higgins. The group’s compositions were inspired by the band’s recent tour of Europe and their ongoing collaborative processes which have only grown richer over the last several years of performances together.
