Re: John JR Robinson
To me JR and bassist Neil Stubenhaus are the best rhythm section ever. Check them out on Bill LaBounty's "The Right Direction".
His solo album "Funkshui" is great. I haven't bought "Platinum" yet, but will do soon.
I personally love JR's snare drum sound. I had the chance to meet him though my friend Neil Stubenhaus, and he is a cool guy indeed.
I like his work on Michael O'Neill's "True Love" too.
JR's pocket is unbelievable. He's got the chops but he makes everything sound "simple", and more importantly tasteful and musical.
