    if you want to get that swinging flavour, try the Bembe bell pattern over swing.

    Also, great way to practice fast bop tempos. Tap your foot in 2, and play in 6/8 (quarter triplets) - after doing this until you can lock in. Then, move back to 8ths.

    It will feel completely different.

    In terms of more complicated rhythms that’s getting more into the modern jazz odd meter/polymeter stuff. 5:4 is quite common, higher polyrhythms might find use as metrical modulations.

    Mind you don’t you get 5:4 in Chopin?
    You even get 11:4 but only in one bar. It’s much harder doing it steady with a groove...

    That's a fine album but the rehearsal sessions are even better IMO:

    I hadn’t heard this. I love it! (Night in Tunesia and Tin Tin Dao are among favourites so it figures)
