That video was from an appearance I did as a guest with Maureen McGovern on the 2004 Jerry Lewis Telethon. The band was full of LA studio musicians to include Rick Baptist on lead trumpet!! I sat in on the drum set that was provided which I believe was a Pork Pie Kit. The snare was tensioned fairly tight providing a crisp response~
Yes, I'm a member of the U.S. Army Blues Jazz Ensemble here in Washington DC. To check out the band, visit youtube and do a search. There are some pretty good footage from a Buddy Rich Tribute we gave.
Thanks for writing!
