"Allen Herman was my first drum teacher. He showed me how to hold the sticks and make them bounce effortlessly. Out of the Box is a beautiful meditation that takes you on a mysterious journey through Allens' universe . This masterpiece is an uncompromising artistic improvisation from a man that has been there, left and come back to a higher more spiritual expression of playing. I am very proud to have helped my first teacher get his personal musical message out and add it to the pantheon of solo drumming vocabulary"
