Baby Dodds


This is a site for Study.  Study of the Old School of Drumming as presented by Baby Dodds, legendary New Orleans veteran.  Specifically, it's for my nephew (grand-nephew, but let's not quibble) Ross Weseloh, who is in the throes of College and eager to learn.

Remember listening to old 78RPM recordings and wondering "What's the drummer doing back there?"  Here are the answers.
A unique perspective on a long-bygone era worthy of contemporary review.  

Perhaps this will contribute to World Peace.
