- Los Angeles Studio and touring drummer Rick Latham is among the rare breed of drummers that easily fits and moves within many musical styles and performing situations. Considered by many as the Guru of Contemporary Linear Drumming, Rick literally "wrote the book" when he penned his classic Advanced Funk Studies which Modern Drummer Magazine names among "The Top 25 Drum Books Ever Published". This book, along with his Contemporary Drumset Techniques has shaped modern drumming, as we now know it.
Rick has performed, recorded and toured with a diverse group of the world’s most formidable artists including Blues Legend B. B. King, Rockers Edgar Winter, Bobby Kimball, Rick Derringer and Pat Travers and jazz greats Howard Roberts, Bill Watrous, Jerry Coker and Paul Smith as well as Grammy Award winning pop artist Juice Newton. Also a member of R&B bass legend Chuck Rainey’s band "Rainey Man", Latham received a full scholarship to pursue his advanced musical studies at the prestigious University of North Texas. Since relocating to Los Angeles, his versatility has also been highlighted on many product jingles, television themes and motion picture soundtracks including the "9 to 5" series, "Fame" the Quincy Jones produced soundtrack, "Fast Forward" and more recently, DVD releases of "Gone in 60 Seconds", "Daredevil" and "Spiderman", just to name a few. He is also the driving force of his own All-Star contemporary jazz "supergroup" "Rick Latham and The Groove Doctors" and "The Groove Junkies".
Rick’s exciting performances, workshops, master-classes and lectures are highly regarded around the world as simply… "The Best".
His latest solo release is his best selling DVD entitled All About the Groove .
