Below is the well-known document that helped rejuvenate an awareness around the US in the early 1990‘s of natural motions in drumming and percussion performance.    Drummers and percussionists in all styles of music worldwide contacted Derrick for years after to discover more on the issue.  This was published in the October 1993 issue of Percussive Notes, the scholarly journal for percussionists around the globe and stands as a tribute to the drumming legends, Joe Morello and Jim Chapin, who gave a great deal of history and information to Derrick for over 10 years.  It was the first of over a dozen articles produced by Derrick and, later on, collaborator, Jeff Hartsough.  Enjoy!
