People talk about “the rhythm of New York.” Is there really such a thing? Can you see it in the way people walk? The way they talk? Is it in their music? Are New York drummers a distinct group? Drummer Ben Perowsky says there’s no doubt about it, and who is a better example of it than native New Yorker Al Foster? On tonight’s Deep Focus, Ben and I will listen to rare recordings of Al with Miles Davis from the WKCR archives. Monday night from 6pm to 9pm EDT on WKCR 89.9FM and wckr.org. Now in smell-o-vision!
