as for the "colossus" sessions - again according to mike vernon - otis was keen on playing with the mac again, but insisted on his long-standing / trusted sideman leary to occupy the drum stool.
I am sure you're right. I've never really intently and consciously listened to drumming. To my untrained ear Leary's playing is more up front, fussy, and on the beat (though that description may be completely off).
