More "Lessons" With Brian Blade !

A few intimate shots of the Master in action, up close & personal:

Is it just me....or does Blade NOT play any kind of standard jazz drumming licks (???) Wow indeed...

A couple shots here of Brian playing in a soundcheck with his Fellowship band:

And here with John Patitucci and Danilo Perez:

Man, even on a "drums-du-jour" set that like that blue set of Ludwigs, Brian Blade still sounds like......Brian Blade !!!

And one last one - here Brian lets loose with Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock (Happy 70th Birthday Herbie!) and Dave Holland:

Some really explosive moments in that statment. More than a few lessons and enough inspiration to take away from that to last a lifetime ! Really makes me want to go out and purchase a 16" bass drum and a 24" cymbal...
