It is just before a festival that I work at with a vocal jazz group and some of the judges will come in and listen to us just because we want the help. So one of the judges who I respect a lot and I am not downing her at all, said to me "You need to right play on the beat and let the drummer play back". I listen to some great players and have talked to great players and they always say you need to play back on the beat. She also said that I should take that over to the band and play right on it. What do you guys think? I will go with whatever you think is right and I respect her a lot but she is a singer lol.
