Jeff Ballard Group
There's a lot to learn when a respected sideman morphs into a bandleader for an evening. Ballard's one of the most fluid drummers around, dedicated to bringing variety to the rhythm section. He's also expert at touch, manipulating the sound of his skins and metal to provide lots of subtleties. The fact that he's built his front line around saxophonists Mark Turner and Miguel Zenon is a statement in itself.
