Can't seem to find my old thread I started up on Gilberto Moreaux which is odd so here we go again.
Just came from hearing a latin jazz trio performance tonight in Vancouver and again i'm speechless with the level of playing I witnessed from this amazing musician and master drummer. This guy is one of the greatest players i've heard since I can't remember when. After a few months of not hearing him due to my own musical commitments all I can say is he's bumped it up a whole other notch yet again. Finished the night with a ostinato solo that had the whole crowd standing on it's feet and screaming his praise after it was over,and yes the place was full of drummers as always for good reason. Incredible deep musical concept going on.
Some of the most musical and inspiring playing on the kit PERIOD going on with this master of the latin drumkit.
Remember the name Gilberto Moreaux this guy is heavy and is setting a new bar for others to take notice believe me. And no i'm not his PR agent just an old veteran fellow drummer and jazz musician who's seen most of the well known greats live in his lifetime and feels the need to spread the word that this guy earned all the praise he can get and rightly so IMO.
Here's the clip I posted earlier of him in August tearing up. Amazing stuff:
