Once again, a great DVD product. Excellent presentation of various drummers. I especially appreciated the section which had the transcribed music from these talented artists. That way I can take my time to learn some of the more interesting parts. I have never been let down with these DVD series by Modern Drummer.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but they need the greats! March 29, 2012
I concur with other things written here. I have the 2008 festival DVD and it was MUCH better as was the 1998 weekend.

First of all, I think way more attention is paid to chops, speed and volume now than fully rounded, artful playing. Everything is loud and fast and bombastic and those qualities seem to be celebrated.

Buddy Rich, Louie Bellson, Joe Morello, Tony Williams, Vinnie Colaiuta, Dave Weckl, Steve Gadd, John Robinson, Simon Phillips, Todd Suchermann, Gavin Harrison, Jo Jo Mayer, Bernie Dresel, Jeff Hamilton, Peter Erskine -- these are several names that are keeping or have kept drumming an art. Find their stuff and LEARN from it! Bernie Dresel is an amazing big band drummer with Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band. (Just in case you didn't recognize that name.)

Drumming, in some instances, needs to be reexamined as musical art rather than athleticism! These young speedpounders have much to learn. Sure they can play fast and accurate as well but BORING??? Where are the ideas? Where do they build to climaxes?

The recording is very good. There are two really motivating players/situations this year:
1 - Jeff 'Tain' Watts - incredible journey into aggressive jazz drumming. His pianist is incredible as well!
2 - Horacio 'El Negro' Hernandez and his New World Order. Insane talent displayed here and VERY EXCITING. AND--watch the beauty that is evident in Horacio's drumming!!!!

Other than that, be the judge. Sorry guys. Maybe better luck next time. Gotta find the 'heavies' again.

All the performers are exemplary, but the masterclasses surprised me the most. John Riley is a fabulous teacher and player. His segment is worth the price of the DVDs to me!
