Just came across this quote, interesting considering the source. "I listen to Bill Stewart play the drums and when I have finished doing that, I listen to Bill Stewart." - Bill Bruford
This is what first introduced me to him, not jazz necessarily, definitely funky,
from the Tonight Show in '91with Maceo Parker. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nBNauzGV-2Q
He was on these releases of Maceo's - Life on Planet Groove, Mo' Roots, Roots Revisited, & Southern Exposure.
