This clip came in this morning from Vic Firth signature artist Gregg Bissonette! Gregg is currently out on tour with the Ringo Starr All Star Band. They had a very special surprise guest at the show last night...
Frank Zappa appeared on the Steve Allen show in 1963 to perform an improvised piece for bicycle, "pre-recorded electric noises" and orchestra. Although his spot on the show was clearly intended as comedic relief, it's interesting to wonder if this kind of performance would be perceived differently today.
Everyone loves a little stick trick now and then, but isn't there a limit to how far one should take the art of showmanship? At some point, shouldn't you say to yourself, "Okay, I should reel it in a little bit here"?
Lately, I have found myself interested in exploring unconventional ways of presenting a standard solo percussion recital. Having performed countless student-based recitals using traditional formatting (entrance, applause, performance, applause, exit…repeat, repeat, repeat), I sought to introduce new ways of interacting with my audience through “alternative” programming, venues, and presentation format.
This is a really funny clip of Bill Cosby on the Dick Cavitt show in 1973. In it, he describes his drumming career and an attempt to sit in with Sonny Stitt playing Cherokee. I think anyone who has tried unsuccessfully to play a very fast jazz chart can relate to Bill's experience!
