Just saw a liveclip on YouTube with Richard Bona Band. If you listen to his 2nd solo [ca 7:00-8:30] he displays a really nice ability to step “in and out of time” with a super confident feel and groove! I’ve seen him a couple of times at Jazz Club Fasching in Stockholm. Every time I left the club with jaw drooped way low…:-) Incredible!
This is really something to strive for! The ability to have “total” rhytmic freedom!
Thanks to notreble.com for the “heads up” on this wonderful clip of Mr Bona!
