Default Re: Bill Stewart

I used to listen to a lot of bill Stewart. I guess I was more into being a "traditional" jazz drummer at that time. Maybe I abandoned it for more pyrotechnic stuff. But for me, I think, the technique is the same but the medium is different. Drums, tuning, sticks, cymbals, etc.

A few favorites: think before you think( love this one wish I still had it)
Mo' roots.

That said I do prefer his playing much more before the metheny trio record. I think he lost a little looseness, that was there before, after that record.
Practice smarter. Not harder.
