Default Re: Harvey Mason

I dug Harvey the first time I heard him with George Benson (Breezin', then the live Weekend in L.A.) - then another discovery was Herbie Hancock's "Sunlight" album. He's also a percussionist and is one of those first-call guys in L.A.. So he's in that inner circle with Joe Porcaro, Emil Richards, Larry Bunker....that groups of six guys that do everything here. He's like Buddy Rich to me - like what can you say besides, "Harvey Mason"? I'm sure I'm hearing him on all kinds of things throughout the day!
