Great, thanks for sharing that-- can you pm me your web address for a hattip in case I want to share it on the blog?

Todd, the hat tip should go to the author. I just came across it from a Google search. I could never take any credit for this guy's hard work in any way.

Very interesting -- thanks for posting it! Back in the day, I used to have to study a bunch of that repertoire, but never really paid attention to its genealogy.

I came across that piece about a year ago. It is a masterful work, and ought to be read by all drummers to help put where they are today, where they came from, and why they do what they do in perspective.
