R&B with Yogi Horton

This is so great. Session drummer Yogi Horton was new to me; a quick search reveals that he's best known for his work with Luther Vandross but also Aretha Franklin, David Byrne, Hall & Oates ... full list here. In this video he takes you through decades, styles, techniques and MOVES! What I love about this video is that he incorporates ideas like tuning, motion and artistic decisions into it; things that often get lost when people focus on technical aspects but are vital to the making of actual MUSIC for and by humans.

An hour long and it's free! You don't need to track down a copy of the VHS any more. YouTube is amazing. Thanks to Tim Jim Baker for the tip on this one.
