I'm trying to blog a lot as I'm heading out on the road with Broadview tomorrow. Here are a couple of beats inspired by some Soca beats I heard combined with someTony Allen afro-beat inspired stuff. I think it's important (at least that's what I'm telling myself) to show myself in the process of working out these ideas and developing them. I don't have them nailed by any stretch of the imagination, nor would I present myself as anything more than a interested bystander/student of these styles. What I am doing. however is using things I've heard to expand my palette and create greater variety in the grooves I play.
I'll keep working on them, I promise!
