Default Marcus Gilmore on Gretsch RB @ Blue Note Hawaii 2/18

The phenomenal Marcus Gilmore was in town last week performing with the legendary Chick Corea and bassist Carlitos del Puerto at the Blue Note Hawaii in Waikiki. Since I don't know of any Craviotto jazz hits in this area and he was looking for something other than the club's backline Yamaha Maple Hybrid kit, I loaned him my 60's Gretsch Round Badge drums for the week.

Chick's longtime sound engineer, Bernie Kirsch, also recorded the trio all week, so a CD release may be forthcoming.

That's fantastic! Did you loan the cymbals and hardware also? The only reason I ask is that I'm really curious about that second High Hat (with 6" cymbals?).

I believe they were a pair of 6" Zildjian Zil-Bells on an extra hi-hat stand that he played with his heel. All of the other hardware was mine (DW Flat Base stands) and he brought his own cymbals (mostly Zildjian prototypes).

That was way cool. What did you use to record? The sound quality was excelente!
