On the back of this, I'm thinking about doing some pad work and renting a rehearsal room. I haven't played properly since April (disillusioned to say the least) and whenever I listen to really fine Jazz playing, it makes me want to go straight back into it. That's what Jazz does for me - more than any other genre of music - it makes me want to play the living *$&% out of my drums. I think it's about bloody time I focussed on being a good player in one genre and I think that it's just got to be Jazz. Every bloody time I listen to something great, I want to play and I can't say that about any other form of music….
Glad you enjoyed it Duncan. I had a chance to talk with the drummer (Jonas Hollgerson) and he’s such a nice individual.

I can completely relate to your “focus” statement. About 12 years ago I had to make that same decision.

Brian Blade is amazing to watch. He reminds me of Billy Higgins when he plays. It’s always with so much joy.
