Re: Brian Blade

He is hella fun to watch play! Speaking of which, there was a point where he was going off and killing the ride he had on his right side and the wingnut on the tilter came loose and the cymbal bent...

Re: Brian Blade... My hero

Brian Blade has definitely become one of my favorite players. I first really got a chance to see just how brilliant he is back in either 2002 or 2003. I got see him twice that year, for free, hells...

Re: Vinnie Colaiuta

Hey Folks,

Does anyone have any idea what kind of snare drum Vinnie used at the 2000 MD Festival? I know it's a Gretsch, and I'm assuming that it's a 5x14 chrome over brass. Anybody out there know...

Re: Desert Island Drum book

I play many different styles of music, but if I could only take one book, it would be either Beyond Bop Drumming or The Jazz Drummer's Workshop. Both awesome books.

Re: when we practice.......

I didn't think about it that way. I was just assuming that he meant recalling it. I'm not sure how long it would take me personally to have a lick enter my playing and it come out naturally. That...

Re: when we practice.......

It probably does vary from person to person, but for me it's probably about a 20-30 minute period. The reason being is because I practice the few licks I learn very methodically and slowly. Take the...

Re: Cindy Blackman jazz-video

She's not doing any particular pattern between her left hand and her right foot. She's randomly picking triplet rhythms and dispersing the partials between her left hand and her right foot. You can...

Re: Lessons in the Boston area?

All of those guys teach at Berklee. You might want to just check the Berklee roster and see about making contact to see if any of those guys will do lessons. Rod Morgenstein is a good teacher and...

Re: Alternative May Mic System?

Hey There,

You might want to take a look at the UKKO mics by B-Band. From what I can tell they are less expensive than the MAY System and got a decent review from the UK magazine Rhythm. Hope this...

Re: can you have too much knowledge to enjoy music?

I see truths in a number of replies. I think that knowledge of music can add to the enjoyment of listening. One example of that for me is when I listen to Jazz Crimes by Joshua Redman. There are a...

Re: Set up/Breakdown

For me, it's a love hate relationship. I don't mind setting up because of the anticipation of playing. I love playing. It's the load ins that irk me. I HATE difficult load ins, you know the kind...

Re: the left/right stick phenomenon.

You're definitely not alone. The same thing happens to me. I try to switch sticks once I see that one is getting a little more beat up because of the rimshots. But, somehow, it always winds up that...

Re: Mixing Brands Drums/Cymbals/Hardware

Oh yeah. Most definitely toms should compliment each other in every way. Same brand, same line.

Re: Mixing Brands Drums/Cymbals/Hardware

I don't think they would sound the same because I don't believe every drum manufacturer makes their drums through the exact same process. Nor do they all get their wood from the same place. At least...

Re: Mixing Brands Drums/Cymbals/Hardware

Everyone has their own preferences. I don't think mixing hardware is that big of a deal. As far as drums and cymbals go, get the sound you want. I have a Tama kit and the only Tama snare I own goes...

Re: Jazz Clubs in Myrtle Beach, SC

LOL! I used to play at the Jasmine Supper Club in Myrtle Beach, SC. It was shut down towards the end of 2006. Currently, there aren't any other jazz clubs that I know of in Myrtle Beach. However,...

Re: Wow. I have to share this with someone.

There is absolutely NOTHING like seeing a show like that! Nothing in the world. I haven't seen it but I know that feeling. I felt like that when I saw Jeff Beck in Orlando, Florida a few years back....
