Re: Bill Stewart
I see this thread doesn't get much attention but for those who are interested or enjoy straight-ahead jazz drumming, you should check out Bill Stewart. A gifted musician who is refreshing as well as inspiring to listen to.
His solo albums - Incandescence, Telepathy, Snide Remarks, Think Before You Think - and various albums as a sideman - with Scofield, Metheny among others are monstrous.
His sense of time, flow, touch and musical ideas are ridiculous.
