Professional Recommendations


"I’ve known brother Jim Payne for many years. He’s one of America’s funkiest drummers and a great teacher. Hanging out with Jim Payne is one of the finest things you can do for your career."

– Clyde Stubblefield   "The Funky Drummer," James Brown -

"Jim and I have had many opportunities to play together and I’ve always enjoyed them. He’s frighteningly well-read, inexplicably mellow, in possession of a great sense of humor and a good friend. His musicianship is fully realized - technically and artistically. His experiences playing with many jazz and R&B legends helped him build his deservedly esteemed reputation. He’s a committed educator. His book “Give the Drummers Some” is a testimony to his hard work."

– John Scofield -"Jim Payne has authored two books that in my opinion are indispensible to any serious drummers’ library. In ‘Give The Drummers Some’ and ‘Tito Puente's Drumming With The Mambo King’ he has provided an incredible wealth of information about two of the most important drumming styles in music today - Funk and Afro-Cuban. And now comes the news that Jim launching his new online teaching program! I say, save a spot for me! I know I’ll learn a lot when I go there."
