Aaron & Jojo
Hey everybody, just got back home from the first day of the Aaron Spears video shoot. Today we had the pleasure of having JoJo Mayer on hand to interview Aaron on camera. The stuff they discussed was fantastic, they got into a lot of deep issues about drumming that were amazing to hear discussed by these two top players. This DVD is going to be really enlightening and informative. Tomorrow we are filming the rest of the DVD, featuring Aaron playing in front of our studio audience, and more interview material with JoJo. We have a lot to cover with Aaron tomorrow, but he is ready for it. He’s a great guy as well as a fantastic drummer.
I know I promised to discuss submissions here on the blog… but I wanted to update you on the shoot first. I will talk about that later.
I will be at the Lion King subbing for my good friend Tommy Igoe on Saturday. It’s a real honor (and challenge) to be able to fill in for Tommy at that show. For anyone that has studied his Groove Essentials materials, you know he’s a great educator and a great player. Tommy was very informative and helpful to me while I was learning the show. There are not very many artists that are equally great at playing and teaching as Tommy is. Check out Groove Essentials, and when you are in New York be sure to go see the Birdland Big Band!
