where can i brush (no pun intended :D) up on some cool jazz stuff? I'm afraid to say my drums are made for metal, however my best friend's kit is Ludwig, which I think would be cool to show him some tricks. I give him "lessons" sometimes, and he's been asking to learn some jazz things.

The Art of Bop Drumming - John Riley and The Art of Modern Jazz Drumming - by Jack De Johnette are good for learning Jazz. I would especially recommend the book by John Riley (because it's a little easier to understand).

When I was acquisition to movability jazz pianoforte, I was doing it pretty more by myself. Having learned underlying harmony as a trumpet contestant, I began to explore the piano keyboard, and in so doing determined for myself numerous of the tricks and techniques that I could discover on my records of Art Biochemist, Laurels Peterson, Duke Jazzman and so on.
