This video spans two information-packed DVDs and covers on the history of US drumming and drum kit evolution. In a way it expands on Disc Two of Steve Smith's Steve Smith-Drumset Technique/History of the U.S. Beat, which was a more cursory examination of the same material.

What I love about this video is how thoroughly Daniel Glass dug into not only the history of drumming and drum kits, but the social factors. If you've ever watched a Ken Burns documentary then you will have an idea of what I mean. The key difference is Glass does not appear to have any bias or agenda.

The best part of this video is Glass demonstrating playing styles and he does so with period-correct gear and drumming technique. Finding the gear was the easy part. Playing it properly was what impressed me. Hie press rolls are incredibly beautiful as is his brush technique. As the demonstrations progressed through to the British Invasion rock era his technique was updated to reflect that too. I had never heard of Glass before this video, but came away admiring his incredible chops, versatility behind the kit and passion for drums and drumming.

Along the way you are treated to a barrage of information. This ranges from personalities who were major forces in the evolution of drum kit playing to factors such as why we now end a fill on beat one instead of beat four.

If you do purchase this DVD set and the vintage drums pique your interest you should also get Traps: The Incredible Story of Vintage which is devoted to the drums and gear that are featured in this video.

Fantastic look at drums and the evolution of the drumset in the 20th century by an absolute master of drums and drum knowledge. Daniel Glass is the man to learn from! He is not just a talented drummer... He is bonafide drum historian with soooo much to teach us.
I highly recommend his video

Mr. Glass has put his incredible talent to work in this project. His enthusiastic discussion of the evolution of drumming styles while he actually PLAYS them for you is riveting. I recently saw him in person demonstrating some of the highlights of this DVD, and he was captivating, funny, talented, and a joy to see. This DVD is a must-see for any music lover.

What Mr. Glass accomplishes in The Century Project, is simply amazing. He correlates the evolution of popular music in the United States from the perspective of a drummer, or better yet, the perspective of the actual drum set itself. While there are some great books on the musical innovators of playing the drums, (see "Swing Men" by Burt Koral), nobody that I know of has presented the forces behind the change in popular music as it relates to the growth of the drum set.

In my opinion what makes this documentary so unique is, it's not just a bunch of sterile history facts presented. You actually get to hear the change in the music courtesy of demonstrations of each musical styles by not only Mr. Glass himself playing on a period appropriate "kit", but selected musicians to accompany him. This ends up being not only a history lesson in the written/visual sense, but an aural documentation that takes the viewer on a journey of a 100 years of contemporary music.

While this DVD is geared more towards drummers, and people interested in drums, Mr. Glass has also produced a documentary called "From Ragtime To Rock" which would probably appeal more to the general music fan. Considering the quality of production, the enthusiasm for history, and the dedication to preserving said history that Mr. Glass displays, I am sure Ragtime to Rock is of the same caliber as the The Century Project!

Well done Mr. Glass, well done.

Daniel Glass has presented a fantastic review of the history of vintage drums sets, 11 stuning vintage sets, with catalog and drum product examples as well. Highly recommended as a course in where the drum set originated!

It appears that this is marketed to drummers. This is a mistake. The disclaimer here is that I have had drum lessons and have played drums and percussion in public, in front of real people. However, I found this more interesting because the information given was given in light if the history in which the musical development took place. Therefore, it is every bit to the person who is interested in music AND history, whether or not he or she has any interest in actually playing any kind of drum. Mr. Glass demonstrates a capable knowledge of the history in which the music that he has an obvious passion for has evolved. So I recommend this package to anyone who is interested in American history or music history. I plan on getting TRAPS as soon as I amass some more points on my Amazon card.

If you're a drummer, or drum lover, just sit back and enjoy 3 hours of history and performances with DG and his hot bands. You will also learn a few things from this professor of paradiddle. I wish it was 6 hours long! Love it!!!

I collect older drums and love this video. If you are interested in the history of drums and drumming you will probably enjoy this too. And Daniel Glass has some nice chops to enjoy watching and hearing.
