The “Musicology Show” is back, with a new show about jazz drumming. Pandora music analyst Jeff Anthony pulls back the curtain on our jazz genome to show us the signature styles of Elvin Jones, Tony Williams and “Philly Joe” Jones — arguably three of the greatest drummers who ever picked up sticks.

This show was edited and recorded by Tyler Brown at Bellboy Recording, a studio that has served as home to many fine Bay Area jazz recordings.

As always, it’s free to subscribe to “The Musicology Show” in iTunes or in any other feedcatcher (Google Reader, Juice, etc.)

Just scroll down on the main podcast page to hear those 50 earlier episodes, or jump straight to the category pages for Composition, Styles, Singing, Instruments and Rhythm.

    "Elvin Jones is a huge inspiration to thousands of drummers. His drum solos and creative expression is mesmerizing. How he could stay in the pocket and float around "time" still keeps me listening to him. Thank you and keep up the shows." I could not agree more. Plus, drumming is like flipping a switch on the human soul. It's pure music from within...primal and passionate. Sigh...

    One of my best friends has made a living out of online radio. It gave him and his band an opportunity that would otherwise never have been possible. Is this happens in your country who is to say it is not going to have a flow on effect here in Aus. I am against it as much as you are!
