Re: The legendary Steve Gadd.
Like everyone's been saying...
He's not the biggest chop master in the world. But he doesn't need to be.
His groove is just outstanding, both about the "pocket" and about his originality in taking to songs. Hence "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover", "Aja", his stuff with James Taylor, outstanding.
I think if someone hears a musician and they can name that person every time... That's when you know when someone is great...
"Man, that's Steve Gadd..."
