This trio’s easy-going style makes these lessons as fun to watch as they are instructive. You’ll start by learning the basic concepts of rhythm section playing, moving on to different grooves, ballads, interaction and much more.

ALL THE RIGHT TOOLS

There’s plenty of charts and notation to help you along the way, as well as multiple viewing angles for you to just watch and imitate. If things are moving too fast, slow down a section with the speed control – the pitch always stays the same and you can digest at an easier pace.

reuben4Imbued with both groove and spirit from birth, Reuben Rogers combined the calypso and reggae rhythms of his native Virgin Islands with the gospel sounds of the church and the freedom and improvisation of jazz to create the unique chemistry that would make him one of the most distinctive and in-demand bassists in modern jazz. Rogers was always drawn to music and dabbled with the clarinet, piano, drums and guitar before discovering his true passion in the bass. He was introduced to jazz by saxophonist Ron Blake and drummer Dion Parson, with both of whom Rogers continues to work in the Afro-Caribbean tinged 21st Century Band, and studied at the prestigious Berklee College of Music. Over the last two decades, he’s been featured on more than 100 recordings and countless international tours with artists including Charles Lloyd, Wynton Marsalis, Joshua Redman, Tomasz Stanko, Roy Hargrove, Marcus Roberts, Nicholas Payton, Mulgrew Miller, Jackie McLean and Dianne Reeves.
