    Looks like it rush hour!

  2. You struck my main nerve! I bought the Take Five album when I was a kid and wore it out……Dave Brubeck, Paul Desmond, Joe Morello, Eugene Wright…..Yeah baby!

    Bisogno

    PS I bought a snare drum at Manny’s in NY and Joe Morello was there. He tuned it for me. It was the best sounding snare I ever heard (for about two weeks).
