Modern Drummer reviews The Latin Funk Connection and gives it 3.5 stars!
My new DVD, The Latin Funk Connection from Cherry Lane/Hal Leonard has just been reviewed in Rhythm magazine in the UK. I'm greatly honored by their review.
*****Latin Funk Connection DVD reviewed in June's UK Rhythm Magazine -5 STARS!*****
"Chuck is one of the world's pre-eminent educators when it comes to applying Afro-Caribbean grooves to the drum kit, melding 'ethnic' rhythms with a western approach. He's simply a great teacher, with a clear, straightforward manner that... manages to communicate complex ideas in easy-to-grasp form. And his enthusiasm from outside the safe confines of western rock'n'roll and jazz is infectious...Chuck breaks everything down into easily digestible sections, as only a good teacher can"

Reviews of The Latin Funk Connection DVD from four of my favorite drummers!
James Gadson just wrote regarding my DVD, The Latin Funk Connection and said: "a great study, very illustrated, i am checking it out again today". For those of you who don't know James' playing...you should!
Kenny Aronoff: "Chucks DVD brings the coolest Funk beats together with some great latin beats, concepts and feels that are amazing and useful regardless of what style of music you play. Chuck also is a very good teacher and exp...lains everything amazingly. "
David Garibaldi: "Chuck has connected funk and latin music in a way that's easy to understand. Plus, he explains his personal concept really well, not only with words but with some great drumming. Very impressive!"
Dennis Chambers: I had a chance to view your DVD last night. It's excellent Chuck. The way this DVD was recorded and the way you broke these rhythms down simply allows the viewer to see and hear clearly so there's no misunderstanding. I loved it! Hey!!!! Just listening to this makes me want to go down stairs in work some things out.
