When a musician plays a groove that’s very solid and with a great feel…”, this is referred to informally as being “in the pocket”; when they “maintain this feel for an extended period of time, never wavering, this is often referred to as a deep pocket.
The Pocket Watchers are a group of Singapore based musicians dedicated to exploring the pocket across a variety of musical styles with strong roots in Jazz, Funk and R&B. It’s a rotating door led by Saxophonist – Tim Stocker and Drummer – Anthony Howe giving as many musicians as possible a chance to find their pocket in a creative and fun environment.
Here’s a Youtube video featuring Tim on Bari Sax / Bass Clarinet when he was in NYC. Can you spot him?
