Tim Carman Trio puts an Art Blakey-inspired Latin groove on their take of the Bud Powell tune “Buster Rides Again.” While in quarantine, Carman spent a lot of time reminiscing about his formative years of musical study and listening to jazz records after the passing of his first drum teacher, Bob Gullotti. Powell’s tune was one that always stuck out and Art Blakey records were getting frequent spins during Carman’s listening sessions. The combination of Powell’s classic tune mixed with the Latin groove gelled surprisingly well and Carman enlisted percussionist Dave Brophy to accentuate his version of the track. The band did one take and ended up using that cut on the record.
