Caught the Night Crawlers last nite at the Cellar. Amazing show! Do you guys play in Toronto ever?
Not yet but we’re working on it!
Thanks for coming to the club and supporting our music,
Hello to all members of Nightcrawlers Jazz. I attended the Envision Jazz Fest. concert last night with our school and you guys were fantastic!
I have one equipment based question: Jesse what kind/make/model of a snare drum were you using? Is that the same snare you always use or do you switch it around?
Love the sounds!
Glad you enjoyed the show last night. I’ll pass your kind words along to the guys.
You can find the specifics of my set up here: http://www.canopusdrums.com/en/endorsers/wj/jesse_cahill/index.html
Last night I was using the 18″, 12″, 14″ NV 60 Kit. Generally I use a 14″x6.5″ WFL Super Classic model snare drum made in 1959. I have a few others that I use here and there but for most things this is the one! This is the same set up that I used on our newest recording. I did however I switched the 18″ bass drum for a 22″ for the big band tracks.
I hope that answers your questions.
Good luck with the festival.
Got lucky last night and caught your last Tusday night at the Jazz Cellar for next6 weeks. Your drumming was amazing. I grew up listening to B3 in early 60s. You channeled the best of Grady Tate and much much more.
I look forward to my next opportunity hear you play.
Jesy, what do you use to record your videos during the live gigs? Id really like to know. thanks and thanks for the great sire
Glad you’re enjoying the videos. I use a Zoom Q3 recorder. It’s picture is not always great as it’s very light sensitive but the sound is always good.
I really look forward to your posts and was wondering if you could do a post on how you approach Jazz and pop/rock charts. ie: reading, writing etc.
Thanks so much for all your insight.
I’ve always felt it didn’t qualify as a road trip if there WASN’T an exploding toilet! I’m enjoying the blog, as usual.
Jesse, you (and the rest of the band) were killing it on But It’s Alright. Thanks for sharing the video. Can I ask what type of camera you were using, and was the sound captured by the recorder, or did you synch the sound later?
I guess I should have read above…. duh….
Anyway, nice job.
Hey Jesse, I’m diggin’ your blog it’s great to see you so active out on the left coast. Pun intended as Quebec is now NDP territory . Please send my warm regards to the crew out there.
PS LOOOVE the Ernest Tubb vid and thats a great vintage Epiphone he’s playing.
I dig your blog man. Question? What kind of Vader stix are you using?
I usually use 7A or 5A nylon tip.
Would love to hear more about the Smulyan show this past weekend. I’m from Victoria and didn’t make it over. Kenny Washington is a huge reason why a play drums.
Thanks for keepin up on your site and all your drum workshop blogs, I’m shedding away at it and when I need more I will hit you up for some lessons.

Hi Jesse.Its always a pleasure to know there are other Duke Pearson fans out there.In my opinion he dont get the recognition I feel he deserves/as he left us with a great body of work.He wrote,played,arranged,or produced many classic Blue Note sessions.But his name is always mentioned in such small ways.He did more than the historybooks gives him credit for.But it dont matter.His music speaks volumes of who he was and what he accomplished.Keep up the good work.Gerald/Nephew of the late Duke Pearson.
Thanks for taking the time to comment. I know that many of the musicians I work with are great appreciators of Dukes work but you are correct, he really hasn’t had the attention that is deserved. One of my favourites of his is “Dedication”. Some great writing and playing too.
All the best,
Hope life is well.
I hope to check out your show at the cellar in tribute to Ross Taggart. I was taking lessons from him for a couple of years and he was a great teacher, performer, and person. Last spring he told me that if he had to choose an album for a dessert island it would be Tony Bennett and Bill Evans “Album” and “Together Again.” I didn’t give it the time it deserved until recently and it is worth a listen; a great gift. He also spoke highly of George Coleman and so I need to spend some time at the record store.
Thought I should mention it to someone and I know you and he were friends. Look forward to the show.
Just wanted to say that you were quite an inspiration for Ethan at the VSO Jazz Intensive. Thank you for sharing your music so openheartedly with my son.
It was my pleasure. I’m glad he enjoyed his week.
Feb 20 2015 was my very first jazz concert in my life. I really enjoyed it especially your drum solo. I guess it’s probably cause I like Bass sound but I also loved all the sounds. Terrell was terrific on the trumpet as was Jarrod on the saxophone. I really want to thank you for the chat we had after the show I will try and remember the things you told me. thanks again
