While learning the Jazz songs, “Whiplash” and “Caravan”, J.K. Simmons’ character brutally auditions three drummers on the double-time swing into the night before finally giving it to Andrew, played by Miles Teller. Perfecting the double-time swing to expertly play these classic jazz numbers was Andrew’s obsession throughout the movie.

Pro tip: a sling was originally an American drink composed of spirit and water, sweetened and flavored.
