I haven't been here (or on any drum forum) in forever, but wanted to let everyone know about the next 2 Rhythm Retreat events happening very soon--week of April 3 and April 17 in New York's beautiful Finger Lakes.

Re: Holdsworth Haslip Husband

super-late chime in, but i caught this gig here in nyc and it was stupendous. i agree with whomever said the thing about the holdsworth/husband interplay. it's perfect. i always find that the two of them are so completely in the moment and willing to take risks ALL NIGHT LONG. gary has this great sn...

Re: Tempo Issues-- Help!

argh. i wrote a thoughtful reply and it blew up in cyberspace. so i'll just say: logistics, mechanics and politics aside--i saw this as a drummer-dancer-keyboardist issue. and i even started to wonder if it was a tempo issue or a feel issue. i haven't done a gig like this, but i did a lot of dance b...
