SKF NOTE: I can’t remember if my aural introduction to Daniel Humair was on record with Phil Woods‘s European Rhythm Machine or as a member of Jim Hall’s trio on his It’s Nice To Be With You album. I bought the Jim Hall album in 1969 when it was first released. Finally, not too many years ago, It’s Nice To Be With You was available on MP3.
Humair’s drumsets, and the way he plays them, are somewhere between a right-handed drummer on a left-handed setup, and a left-handed drummer on a right-handed setup. Fun to watch. Even more fun to hear.
