Re: Dave Elitch
I'm interested to see how he's gonna fare on the new record. I've seen him play with TMV live and that was beyond satisfying, but most of what he played were either Thomas' or Jon's drum scores. I am confident that he can do similar original stuff himself, but I'm very curious to hear it.
For the rest, I have to agree on the above comments; gospel chops, but more restraint than Pridgen (still, I'd like to see him go crazy some more).
Jazz ain't dead, it just smells funny
