Re: VINNIE - The thread about Colaiuta

This is NUTS (new Waldman "Superheros" album). i kinda feel like a new "level" for VC. the mixing / production is just so clean & crisp...i can hear EVERYTHING. his genius is just screaming at me. this is gonna be my jam well into 2019.

Re: New unreleased Vinnie footage - Richman show second set

Unreal. Late to this party. Thank you Steve. That #6 is magical...you can feel the loving, good-crazy music vibe there. This doesn't happen in clubs that often (anymore?). It's special...so cool that this was documented.

agreed ! digestible as 16ths with these 2 bar phrases. i think this odd grouping would also KILL in jazz context as triplets around 180-200 BPM.

Re: HODers VIDEOS TOPIC - Your own drum videos here

Hey geoff, your band is awesome and so is your playing, I mean seriously good drumming. I listened to everything on the website. You've got great time, feel and some tasty chops. Really enjoyed listening and the singer has a great voice. Pity I don't live in the states, I'd have booked a lesson or ...

Re: HODers VIDEOS TOPIC - Your own drum videos here

Hey Geoff, 10 piece band, nice! You really must post a video or audio recording with your band, I would dig to hear that. Are you using a click for it live or just as it comes after counting it off? I feel the same about Purdie on this, and on Green Earrings, just superb playing. I've pretty much w...

Re: HODers VIDEOS TOPIC - Your own drum videos here

I'm currently learning the awesome song Caves of Altamira and if it's good enough I might post it here. That's a hard one to get right, lots of detail and nuance, and it's 79bpm, not the easiest tempo to sit on. Coool Rudy. and yes this tune is a gas to play. I am playing it a fair amount lately (1...

Re: Perfect metronomic time

you guys ever check out Phil Maturano's "Inner Clock" exercises ? unbelievably cool. nice reverb-y clicks at a bunch of tempos. quarters on all 4 beats for about 2 + 1/2 minutes...then whole note click on 1st quarter of every bar for another 2 minutes or so...then 1st quarter of every two ...
