Sorry couldn't resist. This guy might have something to offer of the subject in question. Pretty musical and interesting with tons of musical dialoque and interaction going on first with Rufus then with just himself... QUITE the story to tell of substance to MY ears...other ears may feel very different about that. Who is right? Who is wrong? Does it really matter to the guy delivering the goods at his personal best seen in the clip?It's why I rarely like drum solos in general. To me, drums are the perfect "enhancing" instrument. They feel the pulse of the song and accentuate it. One guy tippity tapping on the lugs of his drums while hitting quarter notes on a hat? That's nothing to me. I'll listen to a full jazz band any day of the week and ADORE it. Jazz drum solos? no thanks.
Just more thoughts on the subject to ponder....
