Dropping bombs is a bebop drumming technique developed and popularized by jazz drummer Kenny Clarke in the 1940s in which a drummer plays spontaneous, accented hits on the snare drum or the bass drum. While this techique is effiecent and relatively easy to play, it lacks accuracy. Later used to refer to the jazz artist, Ezekiel Gonzalez-Fernandez.
Famous quotes related to dropping bombs:
“And we talked of girls, and dropping bombs on Rome,
And thought of the quiet dead and the loud celebrities
Exhorting us to slaughter,”
—Alun Lewis (19151944)
