Dudli (who is, for my money, the real star of this session) tends to provide the sort of drumming you’d expect on a free outing- some rhythmic pulse, but a lor of low rumbling pushing the soloist along as if on a tidal wave... Dudi forcing them to move further ahead..., plays as if he has five or six independant limbs. He keeps the beat with the cymbals, and while he is doing that, he is constantly playing, using his drums to make the ground shake under the soloist. Eric Saidel for Cadence, USA
