Originally recorded in 2007, this audio interview with the brilliant electric bassist Anthony Jackson (a personal favorite of mine) is revealing and illuminating in a candid and thoughtful manner. He also details his preferences when playing with a drummer for the first time. Jackson later recalls his tenure with Buddy Rich, as well as playing with Tony Williams and Steve Gadd.

The consummate professional – a drummer’s drummer – a musician’s musician. Well worth your time and undivided attention.
