EZ Drummer Jazz


Toontrack Music has announced the Jazz EZX featuring percussive artist Roy "Futureman" Wooten. Roy Wooten is an inventor, musician, composer and multi Grammy Award winning performer with Bela Fleck and the Flecktones among others. Here's all the details directly from Toontrack...
Roy's ground breaking percussion technique takes playing drums way beyond just simple time keeping. His approach to his craft is a much more all-encompassing and universal one. He views himself as a storyteller playing music to reach beyond the limits of common musical understanding. His recordings for the Jazz EZX, captured at Blackbird Studios in Nashville, will set a bench mark for how sampling percussive instruments specifically and any musical instrument in general will be done in the future.
"More and more I see the piano like a drum set and the drum set like a piano." says Roy and indeed he sees every single hit and swirl recorded as part of a whole, as part of a musical sequence rather than as single solitary, monotonous hits. That lends a unique scope and musicality to these recordings that has its explanation in the fact that as an instrumentalist Roy Wooten strives to employ the power and science of Mother Nature.
Toontrack Music has had the privilege to capture the magic of Futureman. His touch, his heart, his philosophy and his unique approach to his craft in the Jazz EZX.
Pricing and Availability:
The Jazz EZX will be available through Toontrack Music retailers all over the world at the end of January 2009. More information:
