Peter Erskine – Sweet Soul (1992)

Imagine a lazy Sunday, it’s rainy.The perfect ambiance to put on Peter Erskine’s Sweet Soul. Erskine is one of the leading drummers that knows to excel technically, but also perfectly accompanying a soloist. Many drummers try producing records, but mostly they fail and dissolve into technical displays of drumming.  This record is jazz oriented, sometimes with a smaller, then with a larger ensemble. And no electronics whatsoever. Although I most admit, his electronic adventures are not that unsuccessful. I don’t play this record too often. But if I do, it’s quite an enjoyment. Also, because of John Scofield’s playing on the title track. This track is played so slowly and laid back: in short, beautiful.
