Default Fransisco Mela

So what do you guys think of a Cuban drummer with 16" hi-hats who wants to play like Elvin & die playing jazz?

The Clave and Cascara is inbuilt and not overt. According to him his Cubaness is enough to make his jazz unique. He rides 2 rides simultaneously, and he's shaking the tree big time.

He is Francisco Mela:
