Elvin Jones, Larz Cosby and Sam Cosby Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival 1994

I had opportunity to meet and talk with Elvin while attending The Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival in 1994. I had previously listened to his recordings and watch footage of him playing with John Coltrane. I knew of his importance musically. During his drum clinic he took a liking to my son and I. After we talked for a time and later that evening at the concert spoke again. He encouraged me and talked about the importance of good timing. “Timing is everything. So work on your time.” he said. As a bassist I’ve always found it wise to try and learn from people who play other instruments. I never thought it was wise to just run to the bass player because I play bass. I didn’t know this way of thinking was putting me on the path to where I am now and where I am going. In my series, The CERULADONS, the battles are massive. Taking over planets is no easy task and there must be some form of orchestration to obtain that goal.
Here is a example of how rhythm was used in the civil war.

Now lets observe a more advanced progressive approach to moving troops and winning battles.

I’d like to introduce you to my first Rhythm God and CERULADONS charatcer:

Philanges (inspired by David “Fingers” Haynes)

I was on one of my all day and night stints of writing music and conceptualizing stories with maybe four hours of sleep. Wanting to listen and watch drummers I took a break and discovered David Haynes on youtube. I had never seen anyone play a drum machine and sound like they were live on a drum kit. So here is this guy who clearly can play an acoustic drum set and he can switch over and wreak havoc on a drum machine? I watched all of his videos and after doing some research I decided to get in touch. I’m glad I did. After talking a few times he recorded the drum track for the main theme for my series THE CERULADONS. David is a very blessed and humble human being. I am very lucky to know him and thankful to have him as a friend. His musical journey should not go unrecognized.

I’d like to introduce you to my second Rhythm God and CERULADONS character:

Oriys Seethe (inspired by Kenny Muhammad)

Powerful!!

When I first heard Kenny Muhammad I was deeply encouraged. What I saw and felt was massive. He gave that “I can do anything feeling”. Kenny is well known for using the “wind technique” while beatboxing. Later I began envisioning a character and creating what if’s with him in mind. The character inspired by Kenny doesn’t command his troops from a safe vantage point but chooses to orchestrate their movements in the center of battle but never lifting a hand to fight. So far this has been the most difficult character to name and develop. I came up with several names but when I watched his video again I knew I had to get back work. Please feel free to check the videos and sites below.

I’d like to introduce you to my third Rhythm God and CERULADONS character:

The Mighty Phyiist (inspired by Jeff “Tain” Watts)

The whole idea of Rhythm Gods came from Jeff “Tain” Watts. In the early 90′s I had the privilege to meet and spend some time with Brandford Marsalis. Later during the concert at Kinsgbury Hall I had the chance to exspirience the The Brandford Marsalis Trio that included Robert Hurst and Jeff Watts. It was that memory that stayed with me. When I began to musically visualize The Ceruladons, the first thing that popped inside my head was Jeff “Tain” Watts. He carries the first vein of rhythm to my series and this is because Branford was kind enough to talk with me and encourage me when I needed it the most. Thanks again B :)

Jeff is beautiful in his muscianship and as a human being. If you get the chance to hear him play LIVE you should jump at the opportunity. Until then check out his MUSIC.
