LOS ANGELES, CA, May 8, 2007 — Alfred is pleased to release the 10th Anniversary Edition of Zoro’s The Commandments of R&B Drumming (A Comprehensive Guide to Soul, Funk and Hip Hop) (ISBN 0769216919).

The Commandments of R&B Drumming is a historical and in-depth study of R&B drumming, from soul to funk to hip-hop, written by world-renowned session & live drummer Zoro (Lenny Kravitz, Bobby Brown, Sean Lennon). Topics include practice tips, developing the funky bass drum and hi-hat, creating and playing with loops, and what are considered the Ten Commandments of Soul, Funk, and Hip-Hop (the top ten recordings from each era). This book not only pays homage to the R&B drummers of the past, but gives the reader a fortune of invaluable information both in history and playing.

This newly revised 10th anniversary edition features updated information and loads of new photos and album artwork throughout. It includes a play-along CD featuring various styles of R&B, and also includes an R&B history tree. 160 pages covering every imaginable angle, nook, and cranny of R&B for only $24.95! Voted the #1 educational drum book in the world by Modern Drummer magazine’s Readers Poll, this is a must-have for any drummer’s collection.

“Zoro’s book is a milestone achievement and the most comprehensive book on the subject of R&B drumming I have ever seen.”

Vinnie Colaiuta

“I consider Zoro’s book an essential investment!”

Dennis Chambers

Also available, The Commandments of R&B Drumming DVD (ISBN 0757991734) - $39.95.
