Recommended Music

I recently picked up three records that I'm really enjoying. I highly recommend checking them out:
* Pat Metheny - Unity Band
* James Muller - Kaboom
* Mike Stern - All Over The Place

Re: Meet the new boss

I'm not saying you're wrong, but why is that acceptable? It's not "legal" either. The only reason I don't feel that it's the same, is that cassette tapes are of inferior quality to the original records. And usually, it would be the same cassette that was passed around, not multiple copies...

Re: Meet the new boss

The way it used to be done is, the leader of the band would give you a cassette tape of all the songs to learn, or charts. But sharing music between musicians for the purpose of learning songs is not the big problem anyway.

Re: PETER ERSKINE - Playing Electronic drums

I think jazz can be played on anything; from electronic drums to paint buckets. Do I prefer acoustic drums? Of course. Nothing like them. Visually, or sonically. I think electronic drums will definitely become more popular though. Especially with all these kids who are growing up with those video ga...

Re: Smith & Journey...almost

wow... great playing, DSOP..... Ya know, I wonder if Steve's playing would be very close to where it is today, had he taken the Freddie Hubbard gig, instead of detouring through Montrose & Journey. I also miss the style from Players, Vital Info Orion/Global Beat/Fiafiaga periods. Thanks! I thin...
