Turn It Up & Lay It Down vol 7: Playin the odds. Drums play along for odd times

large-TurnItUpVol7 “Turn It Up & Lay It Down CDs give drummers of all skill levels top-notch tools for learning how to become well-rounded, successful musicians. Playing along with bass lines and music-minus-drums backing tracks helps them develop the key qualities of working drummers and create their own distinctive style and sound—all while having fun playing.

When drum legend Vinnie Colaiuta was asked about his approach to odd time at a clinic, he paused, took a drag of his cigarette, and replied in his cool manner, “I dunno man…I just play in 7, for an hour or two.” Playin’ the Odds provides more than 70 minutes of “where’s one?” fun in its 13 odd-time backing tracks in the progressive/rock genre.
