Tidligere på året turnerede Steve Gadd rundt i Danmark sammen med Michael Blicher (Sax) og Dan Hemmer (Orgel). Det er der kommet et helt album ud af, og kommer du til release-receptionen i København, kan du hilse på Gadd selv.
Trioen spillede i alt 16 koncerter, og alt blev båndet (selvom “harddisket” vel er et mere korrekt udtryk). Og nu er der så udvalgt godbider fra alle disse shows som tilsammen udgør det kommende album.
TID & STED
La Fontaine, København
Mandag den 15. september kl. 20:00
Du kan hilse på hele trioen og høre pladen ved sammen lejlighed.
I øvrigt er Steve Gadd blevet interviewet omkring dette projekt – du kan læse det herunder.
Q: How was it to tour with this trio project?
Steve Gadd: “It was our debut tour and I had a ball playing with these guys, it was a lot of fun and I think that this could become a really unique trio. Often all the travelling can be a bit rough, but we had so many laughs together and also Michael brought so much great music on the tour bus for me to listen to and it inspired me a lot.”
Q: How was it playing a club tour like this in a trio format and how did the audience receive the music you played?
Steve Gadd: “I truly enjoyed it! The crowds were so receptive and they really loved Michael’s music and us as a band. They made us all feel very appreciated – that was really something!”
Q: You recorded most of the shows you played on the 2014 tour and this turned in to an album. How would you describe the music?
Steve Gadd: “The music that Michael wrote for this band is just very unique and it fits perfectly to his and Dan’s way of playing. I grew up listening to organ bands – I love that kind of music. I know Michael has been listening to a lot of great New Orleans drummers. Inspired by that kind of laid-back way of playing and lot’s of other great soulful music, I think he has come up with his own unique thing and the crowds loved it.”
