There are a handful of words that send me reflexively scurrying for the off button: “Mozart,” “President Bush said today,” “Sandy Duncan,” “drum solo. ” I loved it when Buddy Rich told Johnny Carson once that he never practiced “because it hurts my ears.” Which, of course, is why I have to mention that the first of four upcoming concerts organized by Jason Kao Hwang at the Living Theater with RUCMA (Rise Up Creative Music and Arts) is called Drum Solos! and features drummers Newman Taylor Baker, Andrew Drury and Tatsuya Nakatani.
