Today’s guest is Jake Reed. Jake is a Los Angeles-based session player / educator and is the host of my favorite YouTube Channel breaking down recording techniques. On top of knowing how to explain things in an extremely approachable way, Jake is simply an amazing drummer. He’s performed/recorded with trioKAIT, Bill Holman, Johnny Mandel, Bill Cunliffe, Bruce Forman, Cow Bop, Seth MacFarlane, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Matt Forbes, Larry Goldings, Anthony Wilson, Adam Levy, Bob Mintzer, Les McCann, Freda Payne, the Long Beach Symphony Orchestra, Andrew Synowiec, Mako, Ellis Hall, Tommy Torres, and Frenship.
He’s even been asked to sub for Peter Erskine soooooo there’s that. I love his overall energy and perspective on this often too serious world of drumming and I knew his choices would expand my own palate and (since I’m recording this after our conversion) I can confidently say I was rightt…just like always! Anyways….I have a feeling Jake will be a recurring guest on this podcast in many facets…so I hope you like this one. If you don’t. Just push PLAY while your phone is on mute because it’s all about those numbers baby. Cheers.
