It's cool that u are interested in jazz music at this age-it is a kind of music that develops your musicality and feel a lot. I would say Jim Chapin's Advanced tecniques is a great book, and since u have stick control i believe the next step is getting the 150 solos by Chas Wilcoxon-it is also for snare, but employs the rudiments in a musical way and was written for jazz drummers...a cool exercise for getting the swing feel is to swing the patterns in the snare drum books, then put a hihat pulse on 2 and 4 in 4/4 pattens and on 2 or on 2 and 3 in triple feel patterns and finally if u feel comfortable with the groove add the bass drum playing quarter notes for instance...
Alicia Keys hum..? are u sure man?!
