In Seattle we are lucky enough to have a great jazz radio station in KPLU 88.5. I was listening to Montez with Roy Hargrove do a live in studio set that was pure genius. They also advertised a video of the session so I just had to check it out. HOLY MOLY! Montez is only playing snare, ride and hats! Amazing how much music he can get from so little. I had no idea from just listening on the radio. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JW4CCWDAcHw
Check out at 5;55.
I am in Seattle also. I wonder if we have crossed paths in the various jazz jam venues. Please feel free to message me privately if you want to find out.
