“Let the drums speak …”

Just discovered this Italian guy, Andrea Vadrucci, on a drumming related blog (don’t ask) … and he is just amazing. He plays kit, but plays along to a rather bizaar choice of music … but, well, I’m no percussionist, but this guy is pretty damn good. His playing is really tight, even when drumming along to something like William Tell or the Barber of Seville (don’t know that you’d want him in your orchestra though).

One of the most curious though, has to be him playing along with the in-game music from Super Mario Bros 2. There are some great moments in this video (honest) – and a really good example of how musical this guy is (around 3 minutes in).

Anyway, he has a web site and myspace page. Very entertaining.
