Program Note: Fuller Brush Music - Christian Carey

Fuller Brush Music for drum set is an etude for playing with brushes and for playing in a prevailingly soft dynamic range. The performer employs various brushes and dampening techniques to balance the kit for this more delicate sound world. Commissioned by Calabrese Brothers Music, it is dedicated to Peter Jarvis.

Composed 2010 in South Amboy, NJ and New York, NY.

  1. Hey Christian: Glad to read on Twitter that you had a premiere — was hoping that this video was it! (I guess I know it’s too soon for it to be here!) Glad you’re staying busy especially on Carter “Eve”. May we all make it to 103 — Nice to read your Brubeck story below too. (Iron Horse is a cool place!) I saw him play only once years ago at UMass-Lowell, and a few years saw him in the hall at the Hotel Viking in Newport where I was playing a trio gig in the lobby, and he was staying after playing the jazz fest. His rhythm section hung out with us a bit, but didn’t get a chance to chat with D.B. All best!
