Here's an interview with drummer/author George Marsh where he talks about his unique drum method:

  1. Great clips, as usual. I was at Iridium for the first set Monday night. I hadn't heard Matt before and don't know how often he works with Scofield, but he knew the tunes inside and out and played everything with intensity, sensitivity, creativity and even humor; he teased a wide variety of sounds out of his kit. Best of all, Scofield really seemed to enjoy watching Matt's solos.
