Selections by Ken Tanabe

Before I owned a computer, I borrowed a drum set. I learned to play by listening to anything with a groove: from James Brown to The Roots. And I got to know the funk, which is a beautiful thing. My Recess is the feeling of positive sync with good people. And this music is a solid place to start.
