Yep, I'm a Swinger.

Someone emailed today and asked me to post some drum videos. I don’t have anything professionally produced yet but here are some sloppy spots that I shot on my iPhone while practicing. The lighting is terrible but the sound is decent and provides a peek into the style of music I like to play (big band). I like to record and watch these back when I rehearse as it helps me to develop stick and brush fills that I later use in swing tunes. Even after 20+ years I still don’t feel that I have adequate improv skills yet and like to prepare (ie. draft) my solo parts in advance. Must be the writer in me. Enjoy…
