With The Pulse of Jazz, drummer/educator Nic Marcy provides a complete method for building a jazz timekeeping vocabulary. Building on other classic jazz methods, the book provides exercises based around common timekeeping approaches from simple to very advanced (called "time lines"), and provides exercises to develop independence and comping facility with each approach.

In this way, the text proceeds from the earliest forms of timekeeping - such as the shuffle, the quarter-note approach, and the New Orleans "Second-Line" concept - all the way up through the most modern and cutting-edge techniques employed by greats such as Antionio Sanchez and Ari Hoenig.
