Default Re: So, what is it with Steve Gadd

This is really funny. I was talking to a bass player freind about this clip a year ago, and we thought Steve was the clear "winner" (ugh, need a better word) because he just layed down the fattest groove. It kind of speaks to the new era, where the drum stars are creating their own context-either as a soloist or with a "gospel chops" vamp going on- as opposed to the studio stars of yesterday, who made their name playing in a band or sideman context.
