Re: ...for the jazz cats ...

Re: Who is your favorite drummer(s)

Henry Cole is a killer. He sounds great with David Sanchez Quartet as well as Zenon. Lage Lund on guitar in that group is incredible.

What Ballard are you checking out? I love his playing, I...

Re: The Jazz Ride Cymbal Beat

Andrew Hill also did a record with Elvin Jones which, I believe is called "Judgment".

Nasheet Waits was the drummer in his last group. He certainly was not confused about hiring drummers. Or...

Re: The Jazz Ride Cymbal Beat

I listened to "Speak No Evil" and "Adam's Apple" on vinyl last night. Elvin and Joe are very different drummers, but both make their playing work spectacularly for Wayne Shorter's music. Two amazing...

Re: Top 3 Greatest Living Jazz Drummers

I love Nasheet Waits, McPherson and Jabali Billy Hart. Great list of guys who don't really get enough recognition.

Re: Chris "Daddy" Dave Transcription/MP3

Thanks so much. Chris Dave is definitely one of the heavy hitters on the drum scene, redefining the role of drums in R&B and neo-soul settings. He can play some mean straight ahead jazz as well. He...

Re: What was the name of your first bands?

Jokers and Thieves.

I played guitar and sang a few tunes. I guess I was 17 or thereabouts, definitely in high school. We played a lot of stuff by the Allman Brothers Band, the Grateful Dead,...

Re: Amazing trios

The Ed Simon trio is amazing. I wish they played more. Simon's Criss Cross record "The Process" with Eric Harland on drums is worth a listen as well.

I'm very glad people are showing some love to...
