Overview

Paul Wertico is internationally known as one of the most versatile and musical drummers in music today. Paul gained world recognition as a member of the Pat Matheny Group, but has also played with jazz notables from Eddie Harris to Larry Coryell, in addition to being the leader of his own Paul Wertico Trio. When not playing drums, Paul is an active educator as Head of Jazz Studies at Chicago College of Performing Arts. He has won numerous Grammy awards and was voted "Fusion Drummer of the Year" in DRUM! magazine's reader's poll.

Paul's unique approach to the drumset is as much mental as it is physical. His analysis of the performance included in this DVD will give you great insight into the philosophy he employs when he sits down at the drumset. Topics covered include stick technique, approach to soloing, ghost notes, practicing, listening, and interacting with other musicians. Also featured are in-studio ensemble performances of orginal songs, folled by in-depth discussion and analysis.
