Brian Blade with Edward Simon Trio

Some fine playing from Brian Blade here today with pianist Edward Simon and bassist John Patitucci from a recent hit at the Jazz Standard:

I really appreciate the close up "drum" video angles to this footage. It's a great opportunity to see the great finesse and nuance with which Blade plays the drums.

This particular trio also has several albums to its credit including "Poesia" and "Unicity" which are both worth listening to.

The energy and musicality that Blade brings to the music is, as always, inspiring.
