Antoine Fafard with Gavin Harrison: Peace for 4

Gavin's ability to respond and blend with music creates a very natural feel in the opening track of Antoine Fafard's new album, "Occultus Tramitis". What I love about this song is the how the beauty of the composition is supported by the complexity of each layer - the two bass parts, the guitar part, the violin lead, and of course Gavin's playing.

I always call Gavin Harrison "the Peter Erskine of rock", because they share a unique ability to phrase responsively to the musical landscape the other musicians create. Anybody who knows my opinion of Peter Erskine understands what a compliment this is :-)

The result is drumming which is melodic, clear, transparent, natural, and beautiful.
