The Monday Morning Paradiddle

Well, looks like Spring is finally here. Personally I've had enough of this never ending Winter and it seems like it dragged on forever. Now I know how House Stark felt in Game of Thrones, all those years defending the Wall...Anyways, now that the snow is gone and the sun is finally shining and trees blooming, here is what we have on the go for this early Spring edition of the Monday Morning Paradiddle:

- Thanks to Adam Nussbaum who forwarded this nice piece on Albert "Tootie" Heath:

- An interview with Maestro Terry Clarke:

- Thanks to Four on the Floor correspondent Tim Mah for sending along this great segment on Herlin Riley and the legacy of the Lastie family from New Orleans, featured on WWNO:

- Chicago's Chad Taylor featured over at All About

- Here's two wonderful podcasts that I have been following regularly of late,  to get me through this unnecessarily long Winter weather:

"Jazz Stories" from Jazz @ Lincoln Centre:

"You'll Hear it" from Peter Martin's Open Studio Network:

- A wild and inventive improvised solo from Han Bennink:

- "Birdman Live" from Antonio Sanchez:

- A cool drum solo from Idris Muhammad, from a trio performance with Joe Lovano:

- Jeff Ballard plays a mallet-inspired drum solo in a museum:

- I posted this one before but it's really amazing and deserves to be posted again. Here's phenom Tyshawn Sorey with Master drummer Pedrito Martinez:

- Portland's Alan Jones in a little saxophone trio action on "All the Thing You Are":

- Marvin Bugalu Smith is a force. Check him out!
