Enjoying the drum circle photos -- that's my kind of communion, Punch.Have a lovely Friday....now I gotta beat it.
Yeah! I saw Joe Morello when he was playing with Brubeck, in concert. At the time, I was still playing the drums. At one point, he was in the middle of a complicated solo and reached up with one hand to push his glasses tighter to his face. He didn't miss a beat. Impressed the hell out of me. Best drummer every...bar none IMO.Love this series of photos, Punch.
Again, love the sky. Looks like it's fixin to come up a frog strangler of a storm.
i just loved the passion and spunk and color and energy of these past few drum posts; thanks for sharing them !!
I was so busy doing I forgot about being.Thanks all ya'll for your comments. They lead to other connections.Sometimes my connections are too dense an association of loose amalgamated thoughts.To Witt:Intelli… the drum circle provides a strong sense of communion. I had a great Friday, I had to beat it also.Jadedj…I saw Brubeck in Jacksonville, Florida ca. 1961 sat on the third row, center. Went with Ronnie Reitz a high school chum. The Trio; Mr.’s, Brubeck, Morello’ and the monster’ Paul Desmond. When they played ‘Take Five’ I could see the keys that Desmond used, the perspiration on his brow, and the soles of his shoes. Mercy, Mercy, Mercy…as I look back, I would now call that a ‘life changing’ moment. I concur with the ‘Best drummer ever…bar none.’Mr. Charleston…It did, blowing in from the sides. Getting the drumheads wet. Hell, getting my camera wet, I looked like a thief, carrying something off, with my camera tucked under my shirt. But the Nymphs just keep dancing and the light keep unfolding and I just had to remain for, perhaps one more.Harlequin…thanks that means a lot. You have an insight that almost seems a gift. Stop by anytime.
