Default Re: Tommy Igoe

Last night, i saw Tommy at Birdland, leading the big band, and he is a BEAST on those drums.

All of his accents sounded great because he wasn't in his own world while he played. He played the accents with the band and knew the music very well.

His fills were unbelievable and yes......he is very tall.

I heard a lot of his grooves that were similar to the book, so he does ad-lib a bit. But, it was great!
