Hourglass, 2002, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Fusion
O’s Notes: You might expect that a recording of six drummers would result in overwhelming clanging and pounding. While the power of multiple percussive drummers is clearly felt, they are free from congestion, layering the beats to slowly build texture while delicately balancing volume and feel. It’s more than just a drummer’s album; it’s a collection of seven provocative themes. While they certainly Simmer, these guys are also cooking with gas!
