I searched a bunch and didn't find a thread for him.
Hopefully those of use that subscribe to Modern Drummer, or at least pick up a copy now and then, will take note of the great article this month on Carl Allen. A superb jazz drummer and educator. There is a lot packed into the article that I found truly inspiring and helpful as a lifelong student of jazz. I would highly reccomend checking out his suggested recordings, as well as picking up a copy of his latest CD "Get Ready". He is an incredible player and very informative teacher. Anyone else read that article yet? I'll wait and see if one particular passage struck anyone else as it did me.
