Bart Elliott & Billy Kilson
Bart Elliott & Billy Kilson


I had the distinct pleasure of hanging out with jazz drummer/educator, Billy Kilson, during his instructional DVD video shoot at the Sound Kitchen in Nashville, TN.

In this 25-minute interview (which also appears as Bonus Footage on Billy's 2012 DVD/CD release, Rhythm Dancer), Billy and I spend a lot of time talking about our teacher, Alan Dawson. While I only had about a week with Alan, Billy studied over seven years with the legendary drummer/educator! We also spent some time talking about breaking into the music scene as well as some of Billy's philosophies of music.
