Yup, big bands are a whole genre unto themselves, really -- way too many human_ppl for an ordinary small band, but with kit drums...and of course real orchestras don't use kit drums, so there. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Anyhoo, figured I'd jump this thread off to the best start I can think by posting a personal fave and some really great counting practice -- '33 222 1 222' by the great Don Ellis Orchestra (...umm?) with their mindbowling line-up including 2 kit drummers and 3 bass players. I can only imagine the sound in the room must have been fuggin' huuuge! So plz enjoy, and don't forget to plz lemme hear your own fave big band gems, too! Thx!
