Marvin Bugalu Smith Master Drummer
The best way to understand Marvin, is to listen to his own words......
I started playing drums at age 2 and in that time I studied with all of the great master drummers: Max Roach, Elvin Jones, Philly Joe Jones, Roy Hayes, Art Taylor, and my brother Earl Buster Smith. My out look on music is without end. Right now what I'm doing is teaching young people, to understand how the master drummers got there power on the drums. Understanding the basic foundation of the drums. Teaching them that it was used for communication, a way to talk to people. So with this understanding of the drums, we can go to an even deeper level of understanding. My way of playing the drums is to PUT THE TIME FIRST, before the technical side. Right now, I honestly feel we have the very best drum school AND a lesson program online In A LITTLE different kind of trio This is the sixth time that we used the 24 track Tascam recording console and the HD camera for our Recording live at the Terrace Lounge and I’m pleased To say that we have understood the important recording Process that of mixing with some effects This is right in time for the present date 1/20/09 with David Schnitter tenor sax with Art Blakey and Rich Syracuse bass with - And of Course Marvin Bugalu Smith on drums with Archie Shepp and Sun-Ra This trio is a must see!
