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

What I love about the way Roy plays Stolen Moments is his pickup note with the brushes. We've talked about playing in the cracks between straight and swung 8th notes, but Roy goes to the other side and plays it like a dotted 8th note. It's very compressed and gives it a feel that contrasts beautifully with the very swung phrases the rest of the band are playing.
