Re: Manu Katche
I LOVE Manu's playing very much. The guy is so musical, so subtle and so killin all the time. Folks treat yourself - go listen to Sting's "Lazarus Heart" - the playing on that tune is so tasteful and grooving/swinging like mad. When I heard that I was blown away man - I mean the stuff he plays to propel that tune and compliment everything else happening is just pure drumming genius.
His solo album on ECM is really great as well - check it out.
