AW: Re: John Abercrombie

And I always thought this song was about prog rock, not about
Speaking of pupils of DeJohnette, in my opinion it wouldn't hurt most
drummers I know (both personal acquaintances and celebrities) a bit if
they'd turn to be a bit of a DeJohnette clone ;).
I heard DeJohnette a great many times back in the days (~ end of
eighties/early nineties) where I ran to about every jazz concert which
looked only vaguely interesting. Among the nice experiences in my memory
is Gateway, especially DeJohnette's piano playing!

I also have Gateway "Homecoming" -- which is pretty, but pretty 
laid back too. I guess I really do like that '70s fusion feel. I suppose

I'm showing my age. I do listen to the old Mahavishnu recordings an 
awful lot. Heheheh.

The drummer I most frequently collaborate with, Bob Sterling, studied 
with DeJohnette in NYC when he was a youngster. Not that he's a 
"clone" at all, it just that he is listening and changing and fluid
little bit of the time like DeJohnette is. 

The other Abercrombie disks I have are the self-titled "John Abercrombie
/Marc Johnson/Peter Erskin" CD and the more recent "Cat 'n' Mouse"
with the fabulous Joey Baron on drums, Marc Johnson again on
and Mark Feldman on violin (which I like a lot). 

I've some dandy Abercrombie albums on factory cassettes too but I hardly

ever listen to them anymore 'cause I don't have a cassette player in the

car any more (and haven't had one in the house fer years). Time marches
