The entire movie is about Caravan with a drum solo.

I loved it too. I was wondering who did the actual drumming, and later found out that the actor played his own drum parts. Very cool.

I studied with the composer of "Whiplash", Hank Levy. He wrote for the Stan Kenton and Don Ellis orchestras, then taught at Towson State Univ.
His specialty was odd meters: 7/4, 9/4, 5/4, etc. After you sight read those kind of meters, reading in 4/4 goes much easier.
He was crusty but benign, and nowhere the the sadistic teacher portrayed in the movie.
He and I never did see eye to eye, but I respect his legacy. "Whiplash" has always been my favorite composition of his.
