Ten Years of Conundrumming
John Walker, Dennis Chambers, Nasir Abdul-Al-Kabyyr, & Raul Rekow
Ten years ago today a unique Canadian instrument, the Conundrum made its debut appearance in Toronto, outside CKLN Radio, where, in advance of the release of (director) John Walker's documentary, "A Drummer's Dream", world renowned drummers Nasyr Abdul Al-Khabyyr (Dizzy Gillespie), Dennis Chambers (Steely Dan), and (the late, great) Raul Rekow (Santana) had completed a one hour interview on "Corby's Orbit". David Hynes, drum keeper, artist and filmmaker documented the event and edited it together with other Conundrum appearances at the 2014 New York and Toronto Figment Festivals. Thanks Joanne Smale for enabling this magical moment.
