Jazz Written by 63mago A man who knows a bit about this is Charles Robert WATTS (Ger., Eng.). For a living he plays the drums in a little rock band, but now and then he makes and produces an album of jazz music. Here’s what he has to say about this. * * Advertisements ShareClick to print (Opens in new window)Click to email (Opens in new window)Share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Tumblr (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) 13 thoughts on “Jazz” A lesson in the playing of drums. Very interesting and different perspective on Jazz. Q: What do you call someone who hangs around with musicians? A: A drummer! [rim shot] Wow it is amazing how he learned to play. He watched well. Jazz is so cool. I think, all Mr. WATTS wants is to play good music, Joyce, and he keeps on trying. HA! You seen this – for some reason I do not understand, rim shot, cha-bunk and the red button fall in to one. I guess he’s still learning, Wanda. sweeeeeeeet! thanks, sugar for a very lovely piece. thank you again for another great youtube find. xoxoxooxoxo (i’m ok, just trying to wrap up a big project.) Very very cool…as Charlie always is. Your figurehead is beautiful, ago! Good, Savannah, good. It’s the Jylland, Leah. Having read Keith Richard’s autobiography “Life” I can tell you that Keef has very high praise for Charlie both as a drummer and as a man. Awesome geezer. I’ve always loved Charlie Watts, both as a musician and a human being. Mick may be the most flamboyant of the Rolling Stones, Keith is surely the biggest character, but Charlie is a true gentleman and though modest, an extraordinary performer. Just going to make myself a cup of tea and some toast, then I’ll come back and watch. I don’t think there is anything more attractive than a truly modest man. But you can only ‘wing it’ successfully if you are bloody good. Sooner or later I’ll grab a copy, MJ. An interesting gentleman that’s for sure, Roses. Ay, Faycin, good to see that you like him too. Maybe the Stones are a bit soft for your tastes. Ah, toast Eryl Shields – tomorrow I will buy some toast and have a toast orgy: Toast with marmalade, with cheese, with ketchup, eith egg … you name it! Toast orgy! I think he is bloody good. And I like that he does not like drum solos. Comments are closed.
