Default Charles "Rick" Heath - What a Groove!!!!!

Just saw Ramsey Lewis / Philip Bailey last night here in Bahrain, and was VERY impressed by drummer Charles Heath. There is something about the water in Chicago, because the city has produced some amazingly talented drummers.

I can honestly say that he is the first drummer I have discovered in the last 10 years that really floored me. Last time I felt so moved by a "new" drummer was in the early 00's when I first heard Oscar Seaton (another Chicago guy).

There are quite a few videos of Charles on youtube. His website is

Check him out!
