Default Michele Drees & Yolanda Charles.

Please excuse this blatant partial double post, but, for those who rarely visit the drums section of the forum, I'd just like to draw your attention to the wonderful playing on our latest video. Michele is now a forum member. We were lucky enough (through Michele) to have Yolanda grace our session. There will be another video released shortly featuring Michele & Yolanda improv' jamming. For the groove hungry amongst you, it's a must watch!


For now, here's the drum demo video: http://youtu.be/uoGLAH1kYIc?hd=1


I'm hoping we can reserve this thread for comments about the playing. For those wishing to see the other videos, or comment on the drums, please visit here:

When I heard the news that Michele and Yolanda will play together for the Origin Series shoot out, I knew we would be in for a treat, both being such amazing musicians, but this video goes beyond my expectations, these funky, groovy samples are genuinely inspiring :)

Thank you Michele and Yolanda, what a team you are, I could listen and watch both of you for hours :)

Love it... The playing and the drums.

I'm not sure what else I can say that hasn't already been said but when I'm done with the other two clips, I'll try.

Great slab-o-beef groove up front and incredible playing for the rest of it. 3:50 on... holy cow. What a touch- love those triplet fills.

Always grooving- not just showing off. So good.

+ For the playing and the drums.Not to mention she's so easy on the eyes,without all the baggage.Super deep groove.

I'll say it again, all those drum sound just beautiful,but the bass drum is just amazing.If Chuck Norris was bass drum...he'd be that one.:)Cheers Andy.

Agree about the bass drum. Fantastic sounding drums but that bass drum is something else. She smiled too when she hit it with all the mics on.

Groovy groovy groovy... now, thats rhythm section playing!

( As an Arab Sheik once said to Joe Zawinul " How much for that bass player?" )

Cheers guys :) Michele is cooking on this video, but on fire in the one I'll release later this week.

Abe, that little 12" deep bass drum makes everyone smile.

As for Yolanda, she does our little intimate session (thanks to Michele), then goes off to do some low rent gig like this ;) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLfZ7...ature=youtu.be

Some lovely comments here everyone... thank you so much! I'm not a 'show off' player, it's always the groove and serving the music first and foremost , but that may change mwah hahaha (evil laugh) I am sure all us drummers strive for better chops. Haven't quite got into the groove posting here on Drummerworld site yet though :)

Very tasteful. I like the Gadd influence. Even using his sticks I see :)

We already have evidence of your evil laugh in the outtake at the end of this superb video ;) ;) ;) http://youtu.be/-FZQuLQuZG0?hd=1
