Chris "Daddy" Dave
 
You can see him in the new Modern Drummer magazine ... very nice article and interview. I had the pleasure of watching him work with Billy Preston recently, and got to chat a bit with him while waiting for BP to sign autographs. He's one of the most laid-back drummers I've seen, real cool, but he threw in a hot lick every now-and-then that gave me the shivers! Had a sweet technique on the high-hats that has sent me back to the practice room to do some serious work!
I'll try to scan a pic from the magazine and add it in.

Thank you!
That's such a great picture ... exactly how he looked playing for Billy Preston. I was worried about him because he just didn't look like he was having a good time! But when they finished with 'Jumpin' Jack Flash', he got right into it, and was laughing along with everybody. And when I got to talk to him, I discovered he has a great smile, a really positive attitude, and just thought that nobody would be paying much attention to him.

He also played with a band called Mint Condition on some of their songs, I am so glad someone else has heard of him and seen him. He is awesome!

I've seen Chris Dave twice with the Meshell Ndgeocello Spirit Music Jamia. He's the most impressive and charismatic drummer I've ever seen, a real groove generator. He mixes jazz/dub/african/r'n'b rythmes in huge jams, and show off some incredible breaks you always think is off-tempo, but it's not, it just penetrates yer mind then yer body and makes you wanna scream AAAAAAAAAAAAAAArrrrGGGG WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?????????? If you can see him once, don't hesitate, it influenced me, changed my vision of drumming and..................frustrated me.
Anyway he's been also playing with Kenny Garrett on Standards of language: Killer album with killing musicians.
He also have a hip-hop band called The foundation.
He's really my favorite seen live. I also realized how the HHX evolution O-Zone crash cymbal could sound so cool when it so wisely used.

Re: Chris "Daddy" Dave
 
I first met Chris as a freshman in 1990 at Howard University. He asked me to help him setup for an 8 timpani solo with the Howard University orchestra. Thanks right… 8. Quite naturally that put a pause in my step. His practice room was across from me and have seen/herd many amazing things he did at that time… down to the audition tape he sent in for Mint Condition. That 8 timpani solo really humbled me as a percussionist. Drummer World you need to actively seek/get/ask for some video footage. Truly and utterly amazing drummer. He makes the top 10 drummers list in my book. Don’t believe me… go take a look. I know he is on the wish list. You guys have a great site.

Keep hope Alive

I just saw Chris Dave with the Jabene Ensemble. Wow!!!!!! an incredible combination of swing, groove, taste and technique. I called my son to tell him about him and he told me he also plays with Me'shell Ndegeocello. This guy is in a class by himself and I'll be on the lookout for any of the groups he plays in. He is truly an amazing musical talent.

I agree he is one drummer I would love to hear more of. Some guys get too much press that do not deserve it, and others that don't are never heard of.

Yep, I've checked out that youtube piece. It is absolutely sick. Why in the world does Chris not have a profile on this site? He is, without a doubt, one of the freshest drummers out there.

Re: Chris "Daddy" Dave
 
What other albums does Chris Dave play on that people recommend? I just got Kenny Garrett's "Standard of Language". Chris Dave is a monster. Reminds me of Jeff "Tain" Watts and Tony Williams a bit.

Re: Chris "Daddy" Dave
 
All I can say is incredible!! Yes, I definitely remember Chris from his stint with Mint Condition and also from playing with Gospel artist Kim Burrell and a few others. He is without a doubt one of the most slept-on drummers in the biz today. I had the opportunity of seeing him perform at the Blue Note in NYC a few weeks back with friends & special guest Stokley of Mint Condition. Awesome show! Somebody give this brother front page on Drummers Magazine!!

and this too : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mGJOg...elated&search=

it's a shame he still doesn't have a page on drummerworld considering he is quite possibly one of the most influential and important drummers of his generation.

Re: Chris "Daddy" Dave
 
From france : it is not a serious magazine if they don't sacralise this guy, he plays like nobody before, and the reason is that most of people can't hear what he's really doing. Real music only for real people.

Erik Lund 10-12-2007 02:45 PM

Re: Chris "Daddy" Dave
 
I really like his playing on...that Kenny Garrett album I have (what's the name?...) but I remember the first time I listened to the whole album and at the end, the last few tracks thinking "holy crap he just got a lot better on these tracks, that's amazing!" and it turned out that Eric Harland was the drummer...


But still, great player. One of my favorites in the straight-ahead/modern scene.

Just saw this guy. He owns the "time." Great!

Along with ?uestlove, Mark Guiliana and Brian Blade; "Daddy" Dave is one of my favourites. I still don't understand why he doesn't get more attention.

As Jastjohn says he really does fuse hiphop and jazz in a very organic way compared to most other drummers who are trying to do this (which I have noticed happening even more now around the college where I study).

Mikey D 03-07-2008 12:59 AM

Re: Chris "Daddy" Dave
 
He's playing with Robert Glasper in the UK in a few weeks...I'm so excited!

Not only is he playing right near where I study in Birmingham, because we have a deal with the promoter we get in free!

I can't wait to meet "Daddy"!

Any drummers in or near Birmingham, Edinburgh, London, Gateshead or Leeds should make the effort to see him in person. The man is unreal!

Mikey D 03-26-2008 01:48 AM

Re: Chris "Daddy" Dave
 
Just got back...CD absolutely killed it! THE best (IMO) and nicest drummer I have seen live.

When can he have his own page!?

He's got the next Erykah Badu tour aswell.

bmore drummer 03-26-2008 05:50 AM

Re: Chris "Daddy" Dave
 
I saw him for the first time in BMore with Badu at The African American Heritage Fest he played so well. He is definitely a favorite. Does anyone have any transcripts to share of him?

Re: Chris "Daddy" Dave
 
I was lucky enough to go to school with Chris & met him in the Summer Jazz Workshop in Houston when we were just kids. He was a monster then. I was completely jealous of him of course (fellow drummer here). But if he was playing I damn sure stopped what I was doing and listened. He was never afraid of trying ANYTHING on the drums. I don't think I've heard him play the same lick twice... As far as his quickness that someone posted about earlier - he's just damn quick. That's all. I'm sure he has techniques for *really* fast one handed playing, but mostly he just muscles it through. One of the most dynamic drummers ever...

He uses two sticks in his right hand. God Bless.

He REALLY needs a page on here.
He's the most original and innovative drummer i've ever heard

U got a fine taste my man ! I'd list the exact same names.

And I'm so glad to see more people are into Chris, in my opinion the HOTTEST drummer out there, bringin a whole new vibe and rhythmic vision.

He deserves all the best, including a page out here

Peace
