What an amazing start to this year’s Available Light Film Festival! Last night Joe, Jamie and I took in the opening show, “A Drummer’s Dream“. A John Walker documentary (he also produced ‘Passage’, which was one of my favourite movies from the festival two years ago), it’s about a drum clinic held on a remote island somewhere in Canada (we aren’t told where) that connected 40 young students with some of the most amazing drummers on the planet. We had a chance to enjoy the likes of Kenwood Dennard (who played with Miles Davis and Dizzy Gillespie), Horacio “El Negro” Hernandez (also with Dizzy Gillespie and Michel Camilo), Giovanni Hidalgo (again, Dizzy Gillespie and Tito Puente), Dennis Chambers (Santana and Steely Dan), Raul Rekow (longtime Santana conga player), and Mike Mangini (Steve Vai and Annihilator). Sheer bliss.Catch it if you can through the National Film Board or at a film festival near you.
