Kenny Washington on Cymbals
Some great footage here of jazz drummer Kenny Washington demonstrating his old K that Mel Lewis gave him and talking about the new Zildjian K Constantinople Bounce ride cymbal which he also helped develop:
"This guy can hear paint dry" - classic line from KW !
Also, some serious lessons in ride cymbal playing in those clips.
I recently played some of these new cymbals at the Zildjian booth at PASIC '09 in Indianapolis. They are really doing something right with these cymbals !
