    New three-part discussion series with Bill Bruford

    My humble progressive music page Pienemmät purot proudly presents new three part discussion series with legendary Bill Bruford.

    My friend Saku Mantere had an unique opportunity to talk with Bill Bruford about drumming, composing and being a leader in creative environment:

    Saku Mantere: "Bill Bruford is not only the best drummer in the world: he is also a musicologist with PhD. This spring, I had the opportunity to conduct an in-depth correspondence with Bill, with the intent of understanding how Bill, the musicologist, looks back at his career as a composer, bandleader and drummer."

    The first part of this correspondence is now available at: https://pienemmatpurot.wordpress.com...-one-drumming/

    (Note about Pienemmät purot. Pienemmät purot is my passion project that I started about six months ago. I publish reviews and articles about progressive an experimental music. Site is 100% uncommercial proposition. Most content is in Finnish but hopefully there is more stuff available in English also in the future.)
