    Thank you for putting these recordings online where people can hear them. I’d say the judges were on different planets from each other, but I guess that’s what makes these drummers artists. They can grab listeners in different places of the music. Nice recordings, thanks again!

    Gus thankyou so much for this, I’m a long way from home and miss the solo’s each year. I’d gladly pay the powers that be for the privilage of hearing all the great players strut their stuff. I wish it was available to the public at large on a comercial video, (for those of us a long way away who couldn’t support it in person) but I understand the logistics involved. However tonight I sat down with a dram and just listened, so thank you again for a great night.

    Cheers Hamish
