Subtitled ‘New Music for Solo Drumset’, the album sees Terry delve into African beats, Latin rhythms and jazz grooves with no accompaniment at all. A real high water mark in drumming.
Terry Bozzio says:
“Drawing The Circle is a landmark. I went into the studio and did everything in one take - that’s the way I work.”
“Sometimes you’ll hit a rim when you’re doing something melodically and miss the pitch that you’re trying to get across, so if that happens there may be two spots on the record where I’ll sample a drum and put that pitch along with the stick click so it doesn’t destroy the intent of the melody.”
“That’s the only repair work I’ll do - other than that, it’s entirely human and real. It’s the result of me playing that stuff live.”
