Jon Krosnick is a brilliant, compassionate man and an excellent drummer. Gratified to read that the Kenton concert inspired him so many years ago ... he repays that original inspiration ten-fold every time I have a conversation with him. Thanks for writing about Jon and his band and his passion for music.
