    I was at the Village Vanguard on Sunday evening and was checking out the Larry Willis Trio with Peter Washington on bass and Ben Riley on drums. I noticed that Peter was playing at some times mostly with his middle finger, with the middle finger resting on top. Has anyone ever seen this? Additionally, Ben Riley played the drums with a pair of driving gloves on and they weren't that snug and he was still kill'n em!
