Amazing to have so much talent that you can seemingly play drums right from day one, even if his strokes seem a bit ... agricultural.

Here's a really strong JH drum track from his album with Jerry Goodman ... check out the near-Cobhamesque fill at 1:25 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1pXlr8CfbQw ...

Maybe he took it as a second instrument at music college? Since he already played keys he would have been free to study any other instrument (hoping it's true :)
