Default Peter Erskine

While it is difficult to beleive there is not a thread devoted to Pete Erskine, I searched and couldn't find one! I could, however, just be incompetent. In any event, he is one of the greatest players around. His understanding of the musicality of jazz is second to none. His technique is close to flawless and he is the consummate drummer/musician. Check out his work with Weather Report, his work with Alison Krauss and even his live work with Steely Dan. I think I appreciate him because of his understanding of space - listen to Steely Dan's Third World Man off the Live in America CD. Fantastic!

Here's a clip for those unfamiliar with his work.
