Steve Smith playing Wilcoxon

I hope you enjoy Steve Smith's interpretation of Wilcoxon "Rhythmania"

I always keep my Wilcoxon books on my my music stand and really enjoy working through the solo. I like to come up with my own drum set interpretations too, and often sing a standard tune while playing the solo. It's also good to play the solos with brushes and over different foot ostinatos.

I know, right? You could easily assume someone of Steve Smith's caliber is just way beyond playing out an old drum book like Wilcoxon. But, Steve Smith has always struck me as the eternal student, always looking to perfect his craft. Very admirable, for sure.
All the truly great ones are true masters of the basics. That’s true in any field.
