Loopmasters has launched Jazz Drums Vol 2 – Mark Fletcher, a new collection of Jazz Drums courtesy of Mark Fletcher, whose enviable rhythmic performances prove he can he swing with the best of them.
Indeed the musicality Mark expresses when playing the drum kit has to be heard to be believed, with everything from musical tom flurries, intricate brush work to subtle cymbal embellishments, Mark Fletcher is the man to call when you need something a little special for a session.
Mark Fletcher’s CV reads a bit like a modern jazz lover’s record shelf. From Ronnie Scott and Pete King, Hatfield and The North and Gary Husband to the final line-up of Soft Machine to feature Elton Dean and Hugh Hopper, if you know their names Mark Fletcher has probably played with them. Fletcher’s style is deeply aggressive whilst rock solid whether swinging, grooving or dancing round odd metres. He is equally comfortable playing a manic Cobham style solo, a steady shuffle or even delving into Elvin Jones or Tony Williams territory. And if you don’t think brushes can be played loud just come to one of his gigs.
Inside this authentic collection of live jazz breaks and grooves expect to find just over 1 GB of 24Bit jazz breaks and grooves at a staggering range of tempos, from 90-180 BPM. You’ll find swinging rides, intricate brushes, musical tom grooves which will work not only in Jazz but any modern Breakbeat style from Lounge to Drum and Bass.
