Re: Brian Blade
I hear you. Very subtle. I love Momentum. I heard a cut from it on Pandora first and he sounded familiar. Sounded similar to Marcus Baylor - Yellowjackets in his hi-hat phrasing. Marcus is another very subtle drummer. What he plays sounds simple, but when you listen close, it's quite complex.
Blade was just here in town with John Patitucci to kick off his new album "Line By Line." Unfortunately, I couldn't make it...:-(
