Q&A: Eliot Zigmund 2011

In this 2011 interview from JazzOnline.com, the great drummer Eliot Zigmund shares his recollections of the great Bill Evans album You Must Believe in Spring. From the interview, Zigmund talks about his approach to playing with Evans:

“ I was very influenced by the music that was going on around me particularly Tony Williams and Jack DeJohnette.  There was basically a revolution in drumming going on at that point. I really liked the way Jack had played with Bill.  He was very abstract, used colors a lot.  So I was thinking that way musically at that time and tried to bring a lot of color and expressiveness.  I was just trying to give Bill and Eddie what I thought worked in that context.”
