I’m here at Vic’s Drum Shop in Chicago – with drummer and assistant manager John Maloney. To have a drum shop like Vic’s with people like Mgr. Kevin Jensen & John running it – in a city I just moved to – is an amazing thing! The photo was taken while standing in front of a wall of just Paiste Cymbals.

Mose Allison’s new album, Live in California, is out now on IBis Records. Recorded live at the 19 Broadway club in Fairfax, Ca., this will be Mose’s final release. I am honored to have played drums AND produced this fine document of Mose as he is rarely heard: in an intimate club setting.
You will hear an audience that is totally immersed in Mose and the trio. This Phenomenon would almost always happen when Mose performed with his trio live in clubs – but then the music never left the room!
The Polyrhythm Vortex is an etude for one drummer playing 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 with the left hand on the snare while the right hand keeps a steady 4/4 on a cowbell. At the same time the feet on a double bass drum pedal plays in 1/8th notes throughout.
A challenging task for a single drummer but the information as to how polymeters and polyrhythms.
interact with each other is meant for all musicians.
