Part of my job with this blog is to be a curator. In that role, I want to share things with you that I think are excellent, inspiring and push the limits of the art form of drumming.
Here is one such example. Dave DiCenso. Do you know him? Perhaps his most well known gig these days is as the drummer with Josh Groban. He also teaches at Berklee School of Music.
When I saw this solo, I thought it had it all: groove, creativity, technique, fireworks, and great musicality.
Have a look and listen and see if it inspires you. It definitely inspires me.
