The LIVE CD with selected songs from the Jason Becker’s NOT DEAD YET benefit monster show (November 13, 2011) in Haarlem, the Netherlands. Why monster show? For more than one reason. Check out the video below and think about any other drummer who can perform like this for six hours on end,  with some of the guitar world’s most appreciated shred heroes. Pure unadulterated, GENIUS! 

Stay tuned for Atma Anur’s MASTERCLASSES at the next edition of the International Summer Jazz Academy in Krakow, this coming July.

For inspiration, here’s one of countless testimonials from one of Atma’s former students over 20 years back.

Hello Atma, I followed you with Gregg Howe and Jason Becker when I was in high school and would have rather seen you play on more of the Cacophony albums. I learned everything you did with The Jason Becker and Gregg Howe. It was my goal to be able to do everything you did on those albums. They must have been a ton of fun putting together all of those odd time meters and displaced grooves. You helped me to become a better drummer 20 years ago. I wanted to say thank you. You above everyone else propelled me into someone that no one else could have done for those styles of music.
