During the course of the three-disc, seven-hour tour de force that that incorporates both acoustic and electronic drums, Thomas demonstrates and discusses his cutting-edge approach to 21st Century drumming with particular emphasis on his remarkable foot technique and coordination. The drummer then lays out a method for working from slow, basic exercises to fast, complex and challenging patterns in an easy to follow, step-by-step manner.
