New DVD by Virgil Donati Gets Deep Into Double Bass
King Of The Kicks
By Andrew Lentz Published November 25, 2009
One of the fiercest double-kick players in the world today, Vigil Donati puts both pedals to the metal on his new DVD Double Bass Drum Freedom from Alfred Music Publishing.
On this DVD, Donati — known for polyrhythmic double-bass and for being a master clinician, session player and drummer for Planet X — demonstrates common-sense use of single strokes as a launching pad for creative, killer double-bass work. Includes an audio CD with 94 tracks of examples.
Available as a book and CD set for $24.95 at music retailers, or order direct from Alfred.
