Why Drumless Hip-Hop Tracks?
These drumless Hip-Hop tracks will help you hear clearly that Hip-Hop and Bebop are cousins. They are incredibly similar in their use of musical phrasing. Think about the lyrical phrasing of a Rap emcee and a Jazz saxophone solo. They are incredibly similar and both tell a story.
2 types of drum solos
There are essentially, two types of drum solos. One is connecting a series of drum licks and moving from one to the next. Another way is to think of the solo like a conversation. In Jazz we typically think of soloing as a conversation between musicians in the band.
Feeling comfortable with the conversation-style soloing is difficult for most drummers. Most drummers start out with the drum lick approach stay there. They don't know how to get to the next level of rhythmic expression and really "say something" on the drums.
