The Groove Alchemy Book/Audio package is a complete method for developing a massive vocabulary of grooves in various funk-based styles, along with a historical overview of some of the key grooves in the development of funk. This makes an excellent, must-have companion to the Groove Alchemy DVD/Video!

Says Moore:

Groove Alchemy reflects the program that I have put myself through to improve my own funk and groove playing. Its a groove boot camp that will vastly increase your knowledge of classic groovesand more importantly, will also ignite your imagination and make you a funkier and more creative drummer.

The Groove Alchemy book/audio package covers the same topics in an even more comprehensive fashion, containing transcriptions of all of the historical grooves, plus all of Stantons creative expansions and applications of them. The book contains over 600 examples, all of which are demonstrated on the included MP3 CD (or embedded audio, in the case of the digital book edition). The package also contains four play-along tracks taken directly from Stantons new Groove Alchemy CD. These are some of the same songs performed on the DVD, so, using both products together, the student can watch and listen to Stanton perform, and then try the songs for themselves.
