Hey Tony thanks for the compliment. Steve I can relate as well. The jazz world can be very difficult to break into as a stickist.

Hi Steve Kenny Werner has some great ideas about this in his book "Effortless Mastery". In short he recommends sitting down with a piece of manuscript paper and just writing down a few notes and rhythms. Then just work from there trying to build musically around them. slowly develop themes...

I think this is an area which can really be utilized on the stick. As someone who is often thought of as a guitar + bass guy I also look at the stick in the way you guys are describing.
