"Red Hot" ... Rhythm

"Change the rhythm and you change the music." 
- Wynton Marsalis

"There exists in all people, either consciously or unconsciously, a tendency toward rhythm ... the whole mechanism of the universe is based on rhythm."
- Hazrat Inayat Khan

"Rhythm is probably the most visceral element of music. We feel rhythm as much as we hear it; our reaction to strong rhythm is primal." 
- Eric Nisenson

See how you feel about RHYTHM while listening to the audio track on the following video tribute to some of Jazz's Immortals

The tune is entitled Red Hot and it is performed by Flavio Boltro on trumpet, Daniele Scannapieco on tenor saxophone, Julian O. Mazzariello on piano, Dario Rosciglione on base and Andre' Ceccarelli on drums. Can you pick out Dede' Ceccarelli's use of "jingle bell" drumsticks on the ride cymbal during each of the solos?
