"In ensemble situation the drums should be thought of as a part of a conversation between musicians to establish a groove or musical idea. The songs intention is the most important aspect of performance. There will be times when drummers can display their skills. But they should not think of this as a monologue, it should be a dialog among musicians to create a great piece of music."
