Dragan Jazz tips: Once I have asked a new jazz student if he owned a metronome and he said:" No I don't need one. I have a good time" ... My shocking respond was: "Yeah right, why would you???" what an attitude! It's as if the metronome is there to bust you on time ...
In jazz rhythm is perhaps the most important element of all. It's not what you play, it's how you play it. Everyone in the band is "drummer", in that we should all be able to groove together and play it in time.
