Re: Elvin Jones Interview from 1968

Glad you liked it 8! His recorded work with Tommy Flannigan is awesome. Your connection there with the location is super cool. Sort of like when people mention Steve Gadd to me.

Re: Gretsch Renown - thinking about buying

I've purchased hardware, bags, etc. and even a Renown snare. Never a full set.

My personal experience has been fine with them. But again, I have never transacted anything big with them. I leave...

Re: The matching snare

I actually purchase them because I like the way they sound and feel when I play them. Since I'm custom ordering my finish, I also get the same in the snare.

I do own a few snares within the same...

Re: The matching snare

Actually, in all the sets I've purchased in the last 30 years, the snare was never included. All of them required a separate purchase/order if you wanted it, which I did.

I purchased a cheaper...

Re: The matching snare

Yes, 3 of my 4 sets have the matching snare. I may someday make the 4th a match as well.

Re: Help Choosing A Bop Kit

All I can recommend is Gretsch since that's all I play. Steve Maxwell's the man.

Re: Being different and showing people

I have nothing to contribute to the question... I have nothing to show and am not very "different".

Just popped in to say - this is awesome ..........

Re: Orchestrate phrases around the set - Jazz

In my opinion only....

One you can physically execute the phrase and can "have fun" with it within the context of trading 2's / 4's and 8's with yourself (with the phrase being the 2 / 4 / 8 solo)...

Re: Orchestrate phrases around the set - Jazz

Listen to as much of the music as you can humanly consume and then let your ears guide the way.

Re: Finally Picking Up My Renowns Today!!!

Congratulations on a wonderful set. Like others have shared, these are no knockoff drums - they are a professional level instrument billed as an intermediate set. I own USA Customs, New Classics...

Re: do you open a thread because of who posted in it?

Yes, no doubt. However if the topic is something that I am able to contribute to, I will open no matter what.

Re: Can music ever be financially rewarding again?

Define financially rewarding....

Some of this may depend on a persons location. Where I am, making a decent money playing gigs 3-4 nights a week used to be very real where I live. I did it for...

Re: Do you feel sorry for today's kids?

In terms of resources, I think they have it much better.

MP3 players in any form are much simpler to work with than records or cassettes were. I happen to not like the sound of MP3's as much as...

Re: Counting/feeling uptempo jazz

If I may be so daring to say... Stop counting and start relying on the feeling.

That being said, sometimes counting it in 2 or even 1 - versus 4 - might alleviate some of the "tension" you say...

Re: Using less hat

My opinion which may be very "dated".
If you think in terms of a mix on a record/cd in much of Pop music, the hi hat is generally farther back in the mix. The time played on the hi hat helps to...

Re: Drummers around 5'6" - What size drums do you have?

I'm 5'6" and after 35 years, I gave up on fighting a 22" bass drum set up. I now only use 18" and 20" setups. I will never go back. Ergonomically it's a colossal difference.

Not only that but I...
