Mike Sloski - " Waiting For A Miracle " by Bruce Cockburn,to me, is possibly the deepest groove to ever come out of Canada .

Fascinating list, with many fine musicians on it. I would never have thought of cataloging drummers by country-of-origin. It's an interesting "angle".

Right on Benny Skip was a monster in Lighthouse and I loved Sloski in Strangeness Beauty with Piltch and had the pleasure to see them on the same bill as UZEB. Sloski and Paul Brochu on the same bill two great players.
