Jacob Armen At 7 Years Old Belongs High On This List
Jacob Armen first entered the wide world of entertainment, when at the age of seven he appeared on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and played a drum solo that surpasses comprehension. This kid was seven years at the time. Try to believe what you see and hear:
In the 20+ years since, Armen has worked with a number of the world's greatest musicians, including former Yes keyboardist Patrick Moraz, whom I had the pleasure of meeting a number of years ago.
I asked him after a show, where he was headed next. He told me Southern California, where he was going to do some work and possible recording with a 13 year drummer whom Patrick said was the finest drummer in the world of any age. He was referring to Armen. And I think he was right.
Armen recently released a new CD where he plays with some of the greats. Here is a cut he did with Victor Wooten, best known for his work with Bela Fleck.
