I’m Looking Forward To Seeing Tony Allen Next Week

Tony AllenNext Thursday I’ll be going to see Tony Allen playing in London, at the Village Underground in Shoreditch. I guess he’ll be playing a bunch of stuff from his new album, Film Of Life, which sounds great. I’m really looking forward to seeing him play since I’ve spent a chunk of the last year or so trying to do what he does. I love his loose and energetic playing and his amazing touch. Something I am finding particularly challenging is to develop the coordination between the left foot and the rest of my limbs and keeping everything fluid.

I am planning to do more posts about Tony Allen’s drumming when I can make the time. Meanwhile enjoy a couple of tracks from his latest:

Boat Journey – Beastly Bass!

Ire Omo – Hip Shaker
