i watched some videos of him. i'd say he's really pushing the state of the art with jazz drumming! i've never heard anyone quite like him.

Hes coming to my home town with robert glasper soon, I don't find him spectacular, but I will see him. His stuff does have some underlining....importance, but i just think he fills bars whenever he can. I am not being any bit racist AT ALL, but his playing does represent much of the rap/hip hop live playing of today with the likes of mos def and the co. I can't think of many drummers like him, but....lets say, spanky. They seem to fill bars and sub divide whenever they can, I suppose a modern equilivalt of, say, Tony williams? I dunno, just not as appealing to me as jojo or stanton moore. I will say though, I haven't heard him play much. I will see him though, of course! does anyone have any groove playing of him?

I disagree. check him out playing "nefertiti" on youtube. i mean you might not like him, its a taste thing, but he certainly does not just fill every bar to the max.

Can't believe he's not on here. Dude is one of my top 5 drummers hands down.

But anyway...does ANYBODY know specifically what song(s) he played on Mary J. Blige's album "Mary?" Need to find out for one of my students who is studying Chris Dave. Help me out if you know!

Default Chris "Daddy" Dave is beast!

Hey, I'm fairly new here. Since the time when I first started playing drums I've moved from influence to influence. I probably started out just watching Buddy Rich and Neil Peart vids, but I honestly can't quite remember. I also used to watch a lot of street drummers because before I got my kit I would drum on buckets n paint cans; whatever I could find. I also used chopsticks for drum sticks, lol. That was long ago, however.
Anyhow, my point is that first I'm obsessed with this guy, then the next guy, then he gets old and there's a new guy.
My previous obsession was Thomas Pridgen.
And now I'm completely fixed on Chris Dave. Haven't moved on for a while now. He is honestly practically everything I've wanted to see from a drummer. He has a unique style, dynamics, creativity, musicality, technique, and hella chops. He plays a lot of simple beats but always trips things up in his own way and keeps the simplest of beats interesting. He is not very showy in solos and such, but I personally never cared much for stick tricks and flashy lights. Man, I just want the music. And Chris Dave gave that to me. Some of his stuff can be rather slow paced, but usually it captures my attention enough so i don't have to be patient, lol. Like some drum solos can get boring. His don't. If that makes sense.

Basically, you should check him out right now if you don't know him. Awesome drummer, awesome person! Nuff said.

I think he plays on "He Won't Go" on Adele's album 21 as well - the beats in that tune are absolutely dope and really make it.

Does anyone know how to find out Chris Dave's upcoming tour dates? I have to check him out live... Any tips would be appreciated!

Check out Chris on last night's BET Awards with D'Angelo. We were thrilled to see Chris tearing it up on a unique 5 snare drum Brady kit! (Love that 20" kick too!)

His work with the Robert Glasper Experiment is revolutionary from a drumming standpoint (IMO), he incorporates the interesting and influential feel of produced hip hop beats into his Jazz and RnB playing, particularly that of legendary hip hop producer J-Dilla who unfortunately passed away in 2006. One of the things he does is play with the snare drum way on top of the beat but the hi hats behind while at the same time playing in between straight and swung.

He's pretty awesome

He and Robert Glasper are arguably the central figures in transforming modern jazz. Its interesting to me because they have distinct hip hop backgrounds and have successfully merged jazz influenced hip hop elements with modern jazz scene. Chris Dave's drumming is revolutionary on both ends because he doesn't yield to the idea that the drummer is primarily a background component in live music.

Right along with Jojo he's showing that the drummer CAN be the centerpiece.

In this video, Chris shows us all that we have only begun to scratch the surface of what is possible on the drums.

My God he is on another level above even Vinnie. Just pure artistry on the instrument.
