Rakalam Bob Moses At The Chicago Drum Show 2008

Bob Moses is one of the most underrated legends in Jazz drumming. In this video he has one of the sweetest Ride cymbal sounds I’ve ever heard in my life. It’s so soothing like a lullaby. It’s therapeutic.

His mastery of polyrhythms and the way he layers them ]n a way that’s evocative of ancient African percussion ensembles and yet so modern sounding at the same time is astounding. Bob Moses is a musician in total connection to his past and his present.
