The following information was compiled and is maintained by Michael Wall ((808)737-3786) using both personal resources and input from members of the Jembe-list. These lists, while extensive, are not exhaustive and will be periodically updated. You are strongly encouraged to (1) submit new titles (please use the existing format and include all the details including company, category and a brief review) and (2) provide missing information for items on this list recording #, year, etc.) and submit reviews if they are missing.

If you are interested in a particular recording, and complete information is not listed, feel free to contact Michael at ((808)737-3786), who will be happy to check his personal library for the details (which will also then be added to this reference). Michael would also be pleased to receive notice of correction or comments in format, typos, etc. 

General Notes on Finding Recordings:
If  you are moved to rush right out to purchase one of these recordings, please consider supporting your drumming community in the process. Much of media listed below is published either by the author or by small companies. PLEASE SUPPORT THEM DIRECTLY when at all possible. For those items only available from general sources consider trying to secure them from community members that have mail-order or retail outlets such as :
