Re: Joao Donato

Yeah, that's an awesome tune! And I would not say it's bereft of groove, the hi-hat workout is superb! And speaking of drumming, now imagine this: how more infinitely cooler would've Dots been if John McEntire would've been installed as a second (studio) drummer? You know, have Ramsay to keep the solid backbeat, and then make Johnny Mac to add more advanced and contrapuntal rhythmic weirdness on top of it? Of course, he drums on "Brakhage" probably, but for the most of the time it's still either Ramsay or drum machine. In any case, I definitely have a thing going for two-drummer configurations.
