The Steve Gadd drumming transcriptions book honors the talents of
one of the greatest drummers in the entire world: the amazing Steve Gadd. The book includes thirty stylistically varying transcriptions. It
is a note for note, very accurate interpretation of Steve Gadd’s style
of playing the drums. In some cases there are only fragments that
present the most interesting parts of the given song.
The music is clearly notated and easy to read.

for this excerpt...

Do you have a regular routine when you
do these long Albert Hall runs?

SG: My routine is to get up and go out jogging in the morning;
me and Andy [Fairweather Low] do that, then we go to Starbucks! Sometimes I may have to go to meetings, or I may meet up
with friends, otherwise, I just sort of rest for the show.
I don’t have too many other things to do, my focus is
to be ready to play.

I read in the tour programme that you haven’t played
with Willie Weeks before ?

Actually, we have! We’ve recorded, but I’ve never
played livewith Willie. In the 70s, we worked together
on the first Rickie Lee Jones album. At that time he
was in Californiaand I was in New York, then he moved
to Nashvilleand we ended up working in different
parts of the country. But it’s been so much fun playing
with him in Eric’s band, it’s great.

You’ve managed to lock in quite well together.
Was it an easy process for you?
You played with Nathan East in Eric’s band for a long time …

Yeah. I love the way Willie plays this gig. Nathan’s a
great player and a great musician but I’m having a
lot of fun with this band the way it is.
