Default Re: Can Simon play jazz?

Probably put this in the wrong place to get noticed. I think Simon's playing in this is very reserved, even for a jazz drum track, but that's the point. Am I wrong? Perhaps playing this genre of jazz is all about being reserved. I'm looking at this from a rock drummer's perspective. That frustrates me a little because I can't get into the track sufficiently to form an opinion. The performance doesn't move me in the same way as other performaces he's done, but is that due to my lack of appreciation of the form?
