Michael Carvin Unleashes

Special thanks to Dublin's Conor Guilfoyle who hipped me to these two of his former teacher playing with Freddie Hubbard and Junior Cook:

Wow! I really found this one quite inspiring and I'm going to make a point of buying the DVD with the entire concert. I really admire the overall vibe and intensity that they are playing with. You can tell that these guys play like their lives depend on it ! Carvin also plays with a distinctive influence and vocabulary drawn from Tony Williams and Elvin Jones although in a different way than some of his contemporaries such as Jack DeJohnette. I'm digging his cymbal beat and the rich sound he gets from the entire drum set. There is a sense of flow there....well, back to the 'shed (as they say!)
