Drum drops releases It's A Jazz Thing - Jazz Drum multi-tracks, stem packs and drum loops


Drumdrops has released It's A Jazz Thing, a Jazz Drum multi-tracks, stem packs and drum loops collection.

The 41 jazz drum tracks explore iconic grooves within jazz music with tempos ranging from 60 BPM to 360 BPM. It encompasses basic swing patterns on both brushes and sticks at various tempos and covers a wide range of styles from early swing and big band drumming through Bebop, Cool Jazz, Hardbop, Latin Jazz and it's more contemporary applications.

Close attention to detail was essential in creating each drum track so that they replicate the original recordings as accurately as possible. The drums and cymbals were selected and tuned accordingly whilst the touch and feel are clearly captured.

All drum tracks were played by David Dyson and Drumdrops used two variations of David's Japanese Sakae Trilogy kit. These kits are lightweight and ideal for classic Jazz tones of the 50's. The first kit was a 5 piece kit with a larger kick drum and low tuned drums providing a more muffled Big Band sound. The second variation was a typical 4 piece BeBop variation which was tuned higher providing more open resonant tones.

The kits were recorded at Livingston Studio 1 in London using the brighter live room. The tracks were recorded and mixed by Matt Lawrence.
