The Countdown

The Countdown

No not the countdown to the new web site, but, just arrived on LP all the way from Scandinavia, Mulgrew Miller’s The Countdown; featuring Joe Henderdson, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams. I’ve had this on a cassette since 1988 thanks to WPFW but it had long been worn out. Ah another day here in paradise.

And look how skinny he was!


In the studio with calf skin and dunduns

I tucked a new calf skin for my Montinieri 4×14 snare drum just in time to go into the Delmark Recording Studio with trumpeter Yves Francios on Sunday.

The head came out great.  The recording went well.  I also used my dundun drum set on the session.  Hopefully I can get some of Kimber’s shots of the set up in the studio.
