Otis Brown III on Cymbals
Today here's some footage of drummer Otis Brown III talking about his choice in cymbals brought to us by the fine people over at the Zildjian cymbal company:
Otis is a fine drummer that was first brought to my attention through his great playing with Joe Lovano's US Five project that features not one but two great drummers (along with his drum brother Francisco Mela holding down the rhythm fort). Brown is also a frequent accomplice of bassist Esperanza Spalding, the fine young musician who recently won the Grammy award for best new artist. Fine company to be in, indeed !
