Ardour with pi... but this takes the cake... sorry for the way OT post.
A Turkish drummer has had a lifelong ambition to visit America to study jazz
drumming with his idols. In order to earn enough money for the venture he
has joined 'Abdul Ahmed's Club Date Band,' which specializes in Turkish folk
music and is much renowned in the circuit of well-paid society gigs.
After saving up enough money he leaves the band and moves to New York where
he takes private lessons from his favorite drummers, Steve Gadd and Elvin Jones.
After two years of hard study and penniless, he returns to Turkey, where
necessity once again forces him to join the famous Abdul Ahmed. Eager to
show off his recently acquired jazz licks, the drummer crams every available
space in the arrangements with fills and breaks of astonishing complexity,
displaying all of his breath-taking technique. After enduring an hour of
deafening pyrotechnics, Abdul Ahmed approaches the drummer during the
intermission and takes him to one side.
"You know, I think what you are doing is very nice. Very, very nice." He
says smiling patiently. "But for this kind of music all I want from you is a
simple backbeat on seven and nineteen."
