We lost a real legend

Lifetime achievements in the music field are defined by pros like the legendary Joe Morello. Timing above all is at the heart of fine drumming. This guy did it with grace, style and extreme sensibility. He is a model I would tell my drum students to follow, from the meticulous tone of his kit, brush work, intelligent fills, to the way he listened to what the others were playing, to his thorough knowledge of beat variations as practiced throughout the world. read about him here on this link or better still, listen to him on countless recordings, especially with Brubeck.
Thanks for inspiring us Joe. rest in Peace.
