Re: Brian Blade
Brian Blade is such an awesome musician. I agree that he has so much color in his playing, it`s musical...yet so intense, so powerful.
I got to know Mr. Blade as a Acid Jazz or Funk drummer when I watched a few videos...including Jazz crimes by Joshua Redman. I loved it but didn`t know that he can play Bop and all that stuff so incredibly well, too.
Later I watched some videos of him playing with Joshua redman, Brad Mehldau and Chris McBride on bass.
WOW...so inspiring, so creative.
I`ll look out for some cool CDs with him playing...
