Singin’ Drummer

Just happened onto George Marsh‘s youtube spot. He’s a master drummer who has been playing his own music, and with others, across the creative spectrum from his west coast home base for decades. I first heard him on a Jerry Hahn record many years after the record came out, say around 1974.

His music first really knocked me out when I heard a record of duets with John Abercrombie and Mel Graves. Like Ed Blackwell, Marsh strikes me as a percussion naturalist. He is a very organic and warm player.
