Chris Potter put on a great show last night at the Jazz Kitchen. The entire band was outstanding. It was my first opportunity to see Dan Weiss play live, What a drummer! His technique, coordination, sense of time, and musicality blew me away. He uses at least three or four different grips just for riding on the cymbal, depending on the timbre and volume he's looking for. I've never before seen anyone who plays with the stick held entirely by the bottom three fingers, bouncing it back and forth between the thumb and index finger, which are separated by about four inches.

Then, of course, there was Chris Potter.... Enough said.
