    Technically, very cool. sounds more like a practice solo than “grooves” I heard a grove for like 2 bars then rudiments. I’m not in impressed by the “Lack of Rack” toms – he through away just as much as if they were there. put them back and use them – sounds better.

    that was awesome, it was really relaxed and i like the small kit.  it forces you to simplify and focus on groove and use of what you have.  i thought this was great.
