Joe Chambers on First Look with Don Was of Blue Note Records

Quick post today. Here's Joe Chambers with the the ultimate hipster label head, Don Was of Blue Note records,  chatting about Chambers' new release, Samba de Maracatu.   

It's interesting to note that Joe states he's playing the same ride cymbal that he played on all the classic Blue Note recordings from the 60s, especially since Cruise Ship Drummer discussed his cymbals at length in a recent post.

 I just purchased the recording and it's great to hear Joe still swinging and being creative, and even overdubbing himself! There are no excuses why we can't be creative our whole life. Be like Joe! 

And here's my quartet playing " No Ordinary Joe", dedicated to Mr. Chambers….
