Since I just posted some Peter Erskine-inspired loops, I figured I’d share this video of him playing “Birdland” with Weather Report in 1978. Apparently, shirts were optional in this band. I wonder what would happen if they were to share a bill with Paul Anka?
My old mentor from college, Kenwood Dennard, is back to show us how to keep things flowing with Jaco Pastorius and John Scofield. From swing, to funk, to reggae, Kenwood always makes it feel good, no matter what style he’s playing.
