That must have been a little intimidating. I'm sure that was very memorable. Where was the clinic? I saw him at Atlanta Pro Percussion that year. Such a fluent and graceful style. A bunch of us went to the local jazz club that night and he sat in for about an hour. I offered to buy him a drink but he said no thanks...didn't touch the stuff.
