I saw a story in The New Yorker about 1997 that profiled a rather distinctive jazz drummer in NYC. Perhaps you can help me identify him with these clues?
He’s known for being a tasteful, driving player, but he plays a very small drumkit—an 18" floor tom used as a bass drum, a 3x14" piccolo snare, and an 18" flat ride. He plays this kit with lightweight marching drumsticks and brushes.
He sounds like an interesting drummer, and I’d like to find out more about him. Unfortunately, I’ve forgotten his name. Does anyone know who he is?
