Ever heard of Stuff?

  1. ...the band, not the substance. Mid seventies session monsters cuttin' loose on their own. Sweet- groovers , check it out.

    I have a couple of their albums. Agreed, great groovers & top-notch session players; to me, though, they always sounded like they needed a horn player.
    FWIW, I dug Stuff better when they played on others' albums(like Tom Scott's New York Connection for example).

    The Gadd Gang(with Gadd & Cornell Dupree) is another similar example, IMO.
     
  3. The more the merrier.They sound to me like there's no one telling them to end the song- again, to me, a good thing. The guy who recommended them (& claimed to be a contemporary of them- who knows- he was the best drummer I ever played with) also suggested Donnie Hathaway. Thanks for the tip!

    Donny Hathaway is excellent material.
    He's missed...

    There's some cool Stuff footage on the Steve Gadd video from the "American Drummers Achievement Awards." Great DVD.
