Jazz Ostinato in 5/4 #1

So far on our mission to explore 5/4 as fully as possible we've worked on foot ostinatos using Stick Control, adapted the Rudimental Ritual and transcribed an odd time solo by Bill Stewart. Now its time to develop our jazz vocabulary using Todd Bishop's method of ostinato groove development. The idea is to start with a ride, kick, left foot hi-hat repeating pattern and gradually add snare variations. I'm using the 2-3 division (explained in the previous article).
