Ask Henning Stumm anything...
Q: Is the combination of kick, snare or snares, hi-hat, ride and crash enough for a complimentary drummer in an acoustic blues/jazz based trio or quartet?
A: to answer in short: absolutely. to be more specific: anything is possible and it really depends on the setting and the level of musicianship of anybody envolved. if the drummer is good with brushes you could just have a snare and a hi-hat and be ok. If the drummer has a great "ride" feel you could just do a gig with just a ride, at least in a jazz setting. for a blues gig I personally would prefer to have at least snare, kick and hi-hat. you could experiement with any of those compinations using the elements you mentioned in you question. again at the end it all depends on the player and his/her abillity. I hope this answers your question. One Love Henning
