Amen to that, i feel as though i reinvented my drumming from the day i started traditional grip and have gotten wings that can take me way higher. Sometimes i go back to try matched grip for a moment and it feels totally clumps now.
I've noted that Buddy Rich used matched grip when he's soloing on the toms, which i think is quite common in jazz.
