Very occasional quote of the day: futuristic

“A lot of drummers try to be futuristic and more modern, but they lose the groove and find themselves nebulous instead of in contact with what it really is. 

So all of the interesting things that are happening, all of the intricate things that are happening in their percussive playing or music making, don't have the same significance because they lose the groove.”

- Reggie Workman, Modern Drummer, July 1981, piece by Scott K. Fish
