Meinl Drum Festival: Jost Nickel Video

this is an awesome live-recording on which you can hear more of josts' drumming

i got back from berlin last night via train. i really got a good load of work done during the train ride. so that was good :-) i may use the ICE more often now as i really enjoyed using it this time.

anyways, here comes a jost nickel drumsolo filmed at our festival. jost is an amazing guy. he has just started to get into workshops and the clinic-scene a little bit. glad he did, because he certainly has a lot to say on the drums. his playing is fabulous. it feels great, it grooves, it's got an unique musicality and character. some of the licks he plays have become kind of his trademark. for example his unique crash-muting technique starting in the video at about 6:47 minutes. jost is currently working on the new album for german singer jan delay. check out his latest release "mercedes dance live" for more of josts' great drumming.

the meinl festival has openend some new doors for jost, like the one to another drum-event in london in '09 possibly :-)

next week, we'll post some of johnny rabb's video footage. so stay tuned and have a great weekend!
