Default Re: Harvey Mason

I am truly amazed that this is the first thread on Harvey Mason! He is one of the reasons I became s serious drummer - so much soul, so much groove, so much technique! He is a legend and is right up there with Gadd, Chambers and Colauita. I remember hearing Weekend in LA by George Benson and just being blown away by his playing. If you are a fan of his I strongly suggest Dave Grusin's tribute to Duke Ellington which has some of the best jazz playing I have ever heard to some great arrangements of some great songs. The version of Cotton Tail is a joy.

Paul
