The best anthology to date of Caribbean rhythms for today's drummers. His method takes the mystery out of playing many of these beats. Bravo! - PETER ERSKINE (drum legend) --personal correspondence
I am fascinated by his modern and unique way of swingin' all the Afro-Caribbean rhythms on the kit. This book is a modern treasure for lovers of Caribbean music. - HORACIO HERNANDEZ (famed Cuban drummer) --personal correspondence
This is the book we've been waiting for. Written by an absolute first-class musician, these grooves are organized, explained and played with passion, knowledge and swing! I look forward to using this book in my labs at Berklee. - MARK WALKER (drummer with Paquito d'Rivera, etc.) --personal correspondence
