I have the great pleasure of knowing Brooks and of having had something to do with his big band CD, That's It! He is a consummate musician of unerring taste.
If you want to know and feel what this music is all about, see and hear BT's band live. For me, it was a revelation.
Thanks, Marc, for articulating this all so well.

MORT KUFF

Nice interview. Brooks is definitely something special both as a big band drummer and leader. He drives the band. When I caught him several times in the mid-90s in Annapolis, MD., he always delivered performances that were so reminiscent of Gene Krupa's bands. Powerful. Really tough stuff.
