marcelloblues Help: Time keeping suggestions (31) RE: Help: Time keeping suggestions 02 Dec 99


Monk was incredible, he had his own concept of time keeping. One afternoon in a theater in Milan, during reharsal, he stood up while bass and drum kept playin', and started a singular kind of bear dance. When asked about this, he said he was testing the swing.

Time must be inside of your whole body, tap your foot, if you need that, or dance in your head, or study with an electronic metronome, do anything you need to keep concentration and that magic mood of everything's gonna be alright. Personally I seat and tap both feets and dance on the chair, not in my head... hope anybody will dance ON my head. Cheers with a steady beat
