These jazz combo gigs without hi-hats tell me something: You better have a really good bassist up there that lock in a solid quarter note pulse, or else the entire thing can fall off a cliff in an instant.

From previous threads I've read, it sounds like Joe also doesn't care too much about cymbals he use. He'll play whatever is available that night. The videos out there seem to prove that as he always seems to be using a different ride for each gig. This week at Small's, it looks like a 21" Sweet Ride with rivets (wouldn't be my first choice). But, man, it sure doesn't seem to matter. Music starts at 17:00 here:

I didn't know anything about Joe Farnsworth's playing until this thread. Wow!
