Episode 25: 5 Records That Will Finally Get You Into Jazz…if you were intimidated like me and never knew where to start w/ Anthony Fung

May 27, 2020

I don’t know about you, but I’ve always believed that, in order to be a better drummer, I need to listen to more jazz and more importantly…jazz drummers. You know…cause that’s what everyone tells us right? Well, I’ve found EVERY way possible to avoid getting into the genre because, quite frankly, it’s intimidating, I don’t know where to start, and I don’t know what to listen for. That's why I wanted to get my good friend and even gooder drummer, Anthony Fung, on the show to give me (and I guess you too) his choice of the 5 records to start with to begin our jazz-loving journey. All the links to the albums are listed below. Cheers!
