But let’s look at it from another point of view.
Listen to the new Orleans master, Baby Dodds playing a solo1 on the drums in 1946.
Now, I ask you to use your imagination.
Think of Baby Dodd’s playing but:
-remove the bass drum 4 on the floor.
-put some rests among the constant 8th note phrasing.
-replace the woodblocks and cowbells with sounds of a modern drumkit.
Here you are! You have created a comping very similar to Jack Dejohnette’s comping on R.P.D.D.
