The drums are back!
This is a weird sentence coming from a drummer. Nevertheless, this describes how Steve Gadd feels when he plays with Michael Blicher and Dan Hemmer in the band Blicher Hemmer Gadd. This is honest Music. No one plays like this anymore Steve Gadd says. Together with the award winning saxophonist, Michael Blicher and Hammond organ wizard, Dan Hemmer, Steve Gadd rediscovers the sound and feel of the drums playing almost acoustically. This way of playing reminds Gadd of the times back home in Rochester when he sat in with Dizzy Gillespie and other touring jazz bands. It’s simple but yet remarkable that such a successful drummer as Steve Gadd can still find new ways to unfold music and discover such heartiness.
