Hi folks, here’s the drum sheet music for Along Came Betty by Mark Murphy from the album Beauty And The Beast, with Joey Baron on drums.
The tune is a famous standard composed by Benny Golson, in this version Joey plays the head with the brushes and in the beginning of solo section he changes to the sticks. I think Joey plays the bass drum on the quarter notes very lighly – it’s not audible but i think he feathers the bass drum from the beginning of the tune.
The interesting part is the interlude when Joey plays a solo over the melody, he uses a lot press rolls, eight note swing and a typical Elvin Jones’s phrase (the single stroke roll around the snare, tom and floor tom played at the end of the interlude).
Here you can hear the tune, enjoy!
