Re: ...for the jazz cats ...
Thanks for the recommendations guys, I'll check those albums out as soon as possible.
Hare, great post as always. Your blog is a treasure man, right now it's one of three blogs that I can always turn to for a source of inspiration (the others being The Bulletproof Musician and Cruise Ship Drummer). It's always a pleasure.
Polly, I listened to the tune and I thought everything sounded really good. I know what you mean tho, I'm on the same boat. I'm practicing Stick Control as low and softly and ppp as possible to get my overall volume down and I'm just listening to as many records as I can so that I get a sense of how to interact with other musicians.
