Ed Blackwell...

Hosted by Branford Marsalis, here's a brilliant documentary on the life of drummer Ed Blackwell produced by NPR. Special thanks to Chad Anderson who sent these my way.

A great quote from Blackwell:

"Neglect your art for one day and it will neglect you for two!"

And from his friend Billy Higgins speaking about Ed:

"He wasn't a drummer by choice, he was a drummer by design."
