Oh... my... word...

Not only is the drumming amazing, as you'd expect, but the rest of the group are pretty top notch.  The bass player...


(Just have to edit to add.... hi-hat pedal... oh... yes... jazz you really can head bang to :))

Yes, took a risk and downloaded it on release without hearing any preview. But I got lucky: it's a very good album.

I take it you've seen/heard/got this rather tasteful solo, which features his signature hi-hat 1/4 notes:

(which happens to have the nicest tom sounds I've ever heard anywhere!)

I don't have the DVD's yet, but that has gotta be one of the best (IMO) drum solos I have ever seen!
AWESOME! (still)  :D
