Carl Allen on Brushes
From 20 years ago, here's a nice brush feature with Carl Allen on drums joined by Benny Green (piano) and Ben Wolfe (bass):
Dig the slick back sticking work that Allen throws into his solo (maybe that should be called "Back brushing?). I learned how to do that back in my high-school drumline days but never really considered it a part of my drum set vocabulary until I saw Carl use this years later. Why not? Although, whenever I pull a stunt like this I usually drop one of my sticks!
