Video of the Week...Ari Hoenig...

I give you Ari Hoenig...One of my favs. This guy is an absolute monster in all aspects...musicality, technicality, writing, improv...ok, so he looks a bit weird when he plays. I can live with it. Sometimes we get so caught up in chopsfests that we forget that the drums are a real and valid musical instrument. The way he plays the melody, plays off the's just tasty. Check out his album "The Painter" ...his treatment of "Summertime" is mindblowing.
