Produced by Carl Fischer Publishing on DVD and VHS, Dave Weckls first of three in the series A Natural Evolution, concentrates on explaining his *natural* approach to the drums. In his very approachable way, with easy to understand language and careful demonstrations using a drum pad and the drum set, Dave explains his new concepts of stick grip/balance, wrist technique, and the rebound approach for both hands and feet, tieing it all in with the application of live performances by the Dave Weckl Band (the era with Jay Oliver, Tom kennedy, Buzz Feiten and Brandon Fields). A special appearance by Freddie Gruber enriches this educational product.
Bonus features of the DVD include: Alternate camera angles, live concert footage from the Drummers Collective 25th Anniversary Concert in New York, an exclusive interview with Dave Weckl, including in depth discussions on the collection of cymbals he helped create with SABIAN (HHX EVOLUTION-see the GEAR menu!). The DVD is also in both English and Japanese languages.
