Yeah, it's those "silent types" that always turn out to be the serial killers. He chews gum. His use of dynamics is flawless. The whole "second set" was acoustic. Stanley on "double bass", Al on classical and acoustic guitars, and Chick on Grand piano. And that's when Lenny really pulled out the stops. Like they say, those "wise men", sometimes what you don't play is just as important as what you do play. Lenny is "Jedi master" of that school. Locked in tighter-than-tight with the bass and always driving the band, but never stepping on anyone. When he hits his 18 floor, it booms. And he smacks it "once" or "twice". And that's just enough. Anything more would be wasteful. He's like the perfect blend of Jack De Johnette and Dennis Chambers.
