Default Re: Steve Jordan

After falling into a youtoob rat's nest, I ended up watching clips of Steve Jordan playing what is apparently some cymbals once owned by Elvin Jones. The cymbals sounded great ... Steve Jordan sounded greater.

I don't know what it is about him, but his groove is a mile wide ... and infectious as all get out. Like all the greats, makes it look so dang easy.

Like many in this thread, I watched much David Letterman to see him (back in the day). He can play anything and make it "happen" ... unreal.

All the big name drummers with big kits and bazillion BPMs .... forget it. Make it groove and make 'em not be able to sit still. Like Steve. That is what it is all about. ;-)

Peace and pocket,
radman
