Default Re: Tony Williams

Just listening to "Nefertiti" by miles, and the song hand jive my tony himself. He gives that track a real solid, powering beat. Always seems to be pushing the time, his ride cymbal notes are all very squashed together, not spaced out ( which they could be)....really shows his style this album, always pushing it, cool stuff. But not a lot of swing, really shows you how great of a rock drummer he was! I know that at a certain speed, the swing does start to dissapear, but listening to some fast stuff by coltrane and elvin keeps the swing at fast tempos, like giant steps
