His playing on the Avishai Cohen Trio album At Home is also stellar. There are seemingly impossible things happening in some of those songs. I saw them play many of those songs on tour for that album, and he did all the impossible stuff live. Still not sure how. He is on a different level, especially with independence. Also he said in the MD interview that his hi hats were $10 at a garage sale. . Gives a bit of a different tone.
I don't get this cat, nor the people who enjoy his playing. Extremely verbose, spastic groove that doesn't feel good at all, random phrases that make little sense, always on top of the beat. He sounds exactly like someone who'd like to outplay an electronic percussion track. It sounds forced and "tryhard".
To me he's a discount Chris Dave. But then again I'm a nobody so it's not like it matters.
