Man, Steve Smith is one of my absolute favourite drummers. He plays so musical and grooving, but has amazing chops as well.
I wish he would come to sweden sometime in the near future to do a clinic!

I saw Steve Smith at a clinic a few months back during the Calgary Jazz Festival...it was quite good...his hands are unbelievable...very fast with incredible technique...he started off playing a solo...it started with brushes and then he switched to sticks...he then answered a bunch of questions and talked alot about the history of drumming...then he finished off with some more soloing....when he was here he was just playing on a little 4-piece Sonor Jungle Kit, but it was still impressive...most of his playing was jazz playing seeing as it was a jazz festival....the clinic was during the day, and then at night he played a show with Mike Zilber Quartet...it was amzing to see!!!

Steve's a monster, i saw him play live with 'Jazz Explosion Super Band' also featuring 'Randy Brecker', 'Stanley Clarke', 'Allan Holdsworth' and a great keyboard player who's name i can't think of. 'Steve' stole the show that night. He's one of the rare 'fusion'
drummers who can play 'rock' with solid conviction and 'jazz' like a drummer who grew up playing it all of his life.
