An excellent book for the drummer interested in jazz. Of course, nothing substitutes for pure experience in playing the music itself, and listening as well! Luckily, Riley covers these in here.
The exercises he writes are great and have multiple applications because they are simple.
Covers all the basics, a great starting point.
