See closely how a master been doing it for years. Ever wonder, like me, how he actually executed those spicy rhythmic patterns that traditionally characterized Chick's music? Well, here it is; your viewing....front stage.

And how about this one. The click thang!

every night I could

quickly. I asked
how do you know
it is the right take?
He responded:

"If it sounds right,

All the drums, all the chops, all the slick tricks.
And then the master, still, after many moons gone
by steps up and shows us all how it's done with a

How humbled am I.
