Re: The legendary Steve Gadd.
I was on cloud 9 last night. I saw Steve Gadd live at Catalina's Jazz Club in L.A. He and his band were in great form; each member of the quartet took several solos.
Steve's performance exceeded even the highest espectations. His legendary feel, deft brushwork and when theings reved up he was absolutely explosive.
The man was very engaging with the audience and very humble. It was a great evening watching this great (and my favorite) drummer in a small setting like this.
An additional treat was that sitting at the table next to us were JIm Keltner, J.R Robinson and Louis Conte, all of whom were really enjoying watching their friend play.
What a night.
