spring is here
well, spring isn't quite here. it was there, however. on Wed, i woke up at home (Atlanta) to a glorious spring day. it was like 80 degrees, sunny, no humidity, no wind, just perfect.
then i flew to NY. by the time i went to bed, at my parents house, it was friggin' snowing out. jeesh...
oh, and Alex - i forgot to mention for the BOTD posts... Joe Morello just died about a week and a half ago. he was the incredible drumming legend for Dave Brubeck. you should maybe post a video of "Take 5," with a fantastic Morello drum solo...
Joe was one of the last living legends. He was also hilarious. even though he was blind, he had album covers of him sitting on a motorcycle! his clinics were half comedy, half drums. he was a Jersey and taught my Jazz teacher, back in the day. he and Jim Chapin were carriers of the Moeller technique, studying with both Sandford Moeller and George Lawrence Stone.
i didn't get to study with Joe or Jim, but i've met them both and did some playing on a drum pad with them. i studied for years with each of their prized pupils. i feel so fortunate to have learned one generation from these guys. something the benefits of growing up in NY provided me.
we lost a very very very important drum legend. Morello was 82.
Roy Haynes, is pretty much the last one alive...
Bill Evans makes everything better.
 Dude, you're in New York. Stop whining.
I'm going to Pittsburgh.
Actually, I like Pittsburgh, so I won't whine either.
