220 in 10 seconds is 1320 in 60 seconds
that is unreal
someone posted Buddy Rich was playing over 1200 for a few seconds
Art does over 1300 but on a pad for wfd
I think it's a little easier on a pad than a drum but that's still much much faster than 1200

Pretty Purdie plays with Les Paul?
Les Paul must be 110 years old (laugh out loud)

Absolutely Dan. Here's a pic I got of you and Art hanging out with Jeff Almeyda. Art loves to talk drums and technique, and he is a real easy-going guy.

He's in his 90's and apparently pretty awesome.

Hey dig me in the pic! I don't look so bad considering I was pretty hungover.

Art is just an incredible teacher and player. In just a few lessons I am already faster with less effort. He is the real deal in a big way.

one of the best jazz lessons i've ever received how (with an explaination of why!) the "new breed" of jazzers are getting away from being "locked up" with the time and more into "flow" with the bassist. really made me think. thanks.

I just leaned something also
I always wondered why jazz drummers stopped playing the sock on 2 and 4

Jeff is right, Art really will talk to you about finger technique, and anything else that you want to talk about. He's not just a great drummer but he is very interested in teaching what he knows.
