Jazz drum backing tracks that improve your Jazz drums comping, time, feel and trading fours and eights. Practice with 2 of the best Jazz musicians in Japan.


Almost Jazz Standards Jazz Drum Backing Tracks

Improve your Jazz drums comping, time and feel, various drum grooves, trading fours and eights and drum solos. This is the first volume in a series of Jazz Standards arranged specifically for your Jazz drum practice.  These drumless tracks will help you get ready to play real Jazz gigs.

These are masterfully played Jazz Drum Backing Tracks by two top Jazz musicians in Japan.  Pianist, composer and Jazz educator Dr. Phillip Strange, arranged many of these Jazz Standards.  The chords are the same but the melodies are changed.

That’s why I call these “Almost” Jazz Standards.  You get the feeling of the original song but with a special twist uniquely created for this series.

Brushes Mastery Course Jazz Drum Backing Tracks

The audio of these tracks comes from the practice videos for my Brushes Mastery Course.  In the Brushes Mastery Course, you can play along with these amazing tracks while also watching video of the incredible artistry of Phillip Strange on piano and Tetsuro Aratama on acoustic bass.

Jazz Standards Drum Notation/Drum Charts

Reading drum charts (drum notation) is one of the most important skills you need to be a successful working drummer.  All of these Jazz drum backing tracks have drum charts too. Be sure and get those to take your musicianship to the next level.
