“Eric is one of the baddest players out there! This DVD is great because he really breaks down his playing, concepts, and outlook.
It is rare to find musicians that are actually articulate with words! He is also a spiritual, carefree, beautiful human being.
So while this DVD offers meticulous technical concepts specific to jazz drumming, it also offers a great philosophical outlook on music.“
Aaron Hipschman, Palo Alto, CA, via Amazon.com
Grammy-nominated & three-times Downbeat Rising Star drums winner Eric Harland is well known for his unique organic sound and orchestral approach to jazz drumming.
Eric has recorded over 100 albums with the likes of McCoy Tyner, Charles Lloyd, Zakir Hussain, Jason Moran, Dave Holland & Terence Blanchard, and co-leads all-star groups like SF Jazz Collective, James Farm, The Overtone Quartet or Sangam Trio, as well as his own quintet.
Inside of “The Yin & Yang of Jazz Drumming”, Eric offers a fresh approach & perspective to music and the jazz drumming.
He shares many life lessons that will touch your heart and help you find your own distinctive voice.
Eric discusses how to be yourself, finding your musical purpose, and, of course, throws in
some rather stunning performances.
“An excellent complement to Ralph Peterson’s DVD!
Eric Harland goes into great depth on specific points of his modern playing (odd measures, polyrhythms, placement of time, etc.).
We are witnessing great moments of music (with the band and solo).
The quality of this video, incl. the sound, makes it one of the best products currently available in this category! I’m a fan!“

I admire the degree of love, care and hard work that was put into this production.
The set and the lighting are pleasing to the eye and the sound is, of course, killing!

“Harland’s affable personality, stunning skills and ability to speak in universal, non-musical terms when it counts, makes this a winning disc that could help neophytes or Harland-lovers looking for a glimpse into his mind.“
