Nice piece from the NY Times, a good write up of Tyshawn Sorey (though remarkably no mention of his excellent That/Not album):

Sometimes Tyshawn Sorey’s drumming, big and precise, threatens to take over a band completely, to pick it up like a backhoe and swing it around. But more recently his playing has been surprisingly quiet, drawing you into small, rhythmic clicks and the decay of cymbal sounds.
