Re: Chad Wackerman
I also saw him a few months ago at the Montreal jazz fest. I was floored.
Effortless mastering of countless time signatures, brilliant and tasteful use of cymbals, especially his china and bells, amazing fills - great use of his high tom, amazing grooves.
We were two drummers together, in a sea of guitarists, and we hardly paid any attention at all to Holdsworth - quite a shame actually !
I subsequently bought the record "All night wrong" which is performed by the same trio. What a band.
