Hey Joe, always wondered how 'big' a pair of ears one needs as a drummer if one is gigging with a large latin perc ensemble like yourself when you are playing for Estaban. Do you find yourself paring your playing down when playing with congas, timbales, and other assorted percs. I notice Dennis Chamber's playing is distinctly different when he plays with Carlos Santana's pretty large ensemble. Curious to know what you feel?

Is there a different way to mentally approach a gig when there are a lot of other counter/poly rhythms in the band?
