The Rhythm

Steve Ferrone

Somewhere deep in the recesses of my mind I believe that rhythm and in particular the sound of the drum kit was one of the first aspects of music that I was drawn to in music. Like a wonderful physical attribute of a beautiful woman, the beat appealed to my sense and my sense of curiosity. Done right, she’s steady, sensual, powerful and oh so ever attention grabbing.

Today I wanted to post a clip of one of my favorite drummers with a few friends that we all know of his and that’s none other than Steve Ferrone. What I love about Steve then and now is it’s all about the groove, all about that pocket.

I need to find a personal pocket on this journey.
