Man, I just did a search and couldn't find Vernel Fournier.....? I dug out my 'Live at the Pershing' recently and have had it on repeat constantly. Sometimes I wonder if there has been a better trio.
Either way, Vernel had some of the most cracking playing for a small combo you will ever hear. His brush work astounds me consistently and I find myself re-inspired to work madly on them after listening to him.
Does anyone else dig him here?
