Thanks D for recommending Snarky Puppy, these guys are great.

I love how music is evolving, especially with these selected group of musicians. It seems it's no longer about highlighting an individual but rather it's back to a "group" scenario with a whole lot of energy and .....fusion? By my adding a label Fusion I meant a fusion of "some sort." This particular set of musicians have taken it to a whole new level that will be easily classified, by the critiques, as.....jazz? I'm sure the musicians would disagree by far and would rather just call it music that's touching the human senses.

Don't mean to demean it in any way or form but it's kind of like an elaborate/progressive school band on creative steroids!

"I just realized, again, just how long
we have all been together on
this board and am thankful".


Pete, feelings are mutual. I can remember far back on why I came to this site and it was because of Boomer, of course, but also it was your insights on music and your making available an atmosphere where many could express their inner thoughts on jazz and drumming. There was not a site as unique as yours and I will always appreciate your knowledge and mannerisms. Also, doing Conundrum together and sharing those sound bytes at my shop was the height of my afternoons where my Roland edrums were set up - I looked forward to those afternoons all by myself sharing sound bytes. It was my man-cave of escape from the outside world. Life was different then but your site and our sharing of music and thoughts was balm to my troubled soul.

Anyway,  I love you man and so do the rest of us. I also miss uncle Suss but I do drop him a line or two out there in Facebook land.

God bless you and yours as always,

Should any of you ever get the chance to see
Snarky Puppy, I recommend you do so.

D, or anyone for that, do you think that the drummer may well be a gospel drummer under control? I think he shows tints of his style and approach somewhat. Just a thought.
