Nate Chinen is one of the best and most perceptive writer on jazz to emerge in the last decade. This feature (with an accompanying video) is on drummer/lawyer Pete LaRoca Simms, one of the greatest musicians to sit behind a set of drums and one of the most independent and determined people I’ve ever met. Pete was true to himself to the end. If you don’t know his work, your research will be amply rewarded.
