Beautiful. He evokes that kind of deep, meaningful response from so many drummers. That clip you posted is one of my favorites.

One of the most eye-opening moments of my musical life was when a friend put on a recording of the Miles Davis Complete '64 Concert, My Funny Valentine + Four & More. Tony's playing on that record just transformed my understanding of the drum set from that point forward.

Gary, for what it's worth, I think that spirit of creativity and fearlessness that Tony had very much lives on in your music. One of the most memorable concerts I've attended was a show you played with Allan Holdsworth at Alvin's in Detroit back in the mid-90s. The energy was off-the-charts.
