Re: Ari Hoenig Digestion Suggestions

If you're an iTunes kind of person; there's a great iTunes Essentials set called 'Jazz: The Young Lions'. Most of the artists are somehow related to the Marsalis stable; but it's a great set to get your ears on a lot of the more expressive [newer school] artists in jazz. Not sure if there's any Ari ...

Re: David "Frankie" Toler- RIP

I have a Toler Bros record from not too far back. All black cover with just a Toler Bros emblem on it. Some fantastic blues drumming on that. Great feel. Sad to hear. Condolences Pat.

Sounds like you need some perspective. How about striking up a conversation with someone confined to a wheelchair? How about a trip to the local homeless shelter? How about a trip to downtown Joplin? In the spirit of Memorial Day, take a trip to the closest War memorial and pay your respects to the...

How many LA HODers are following or into Kiev? I've been digging these guys immensely. Here's a cool one:

Re: Nashville first-call drummers

Pat- Is Billy Thomas still around Nashville? Always loved his playing with Vince Gill. Also another favorite of mine is Willie Ornelas but I don't know if he was ever a 'Nashville' guy or not. I know he's worked a lot with Chris Hillman and Jerry Douglas, both those guys have strong ties to Nashvill...

Re: 3 snares to do it all...

I'd say a vintage CoB Supra 5x14, a solid shell Radio King 5x14, and probably a nice Brady 6.5x14. I have a few Supras and RKs, but don't have a Brady... yet. The ones I've heard are amazing.

I would like to see Virgil in the drum seat though.

Re: ROBBEN FORD TRIO LIVE VIDEO - PARIS

Man, I love Toss Panos. Thanks for sharing this link. So much personality in Toss' groove. The stuff he's been doing with Robben Ford in the past 5-6 years is so hip. Perfect rhythmic compliment to Robben Ford's playing. Greasy, but not sloppy; busy, but understated and not overpowering; it's hard t...
