Watch A Julliard Jazz Professor Come Up With His Own Drum Parts For Nirvana’s “In Bloom”


Ulysses Owens Jr., a small ensemble director at The Julliard School in New York, was recently tasked with breaking out of his traditional jazz background by Drumeo. They had the professor take in a version of “In Bloom“, the final single from Nirvana‘s 1991 diamond-certified grunge landmark “Nevermind“, without Dave Grohl‘s drumming.

They then tasked him with creating his own drum parts for the track. As you’ll see for yourself, he came up with a somewhat unique approach to it. Afterwards you can watch his reaction to hearing the original track itself.
