  ALLABOUTJAZZ.COM - REVIEW: 2010

One of the most recorded drummers of all time, Steve Gadd
has worked with everyone from Chick Corea to Paul Simon,
Maynard Ferguson to Eric Clapton. When it comes to his own
projects, Gadd loves to play good-time groove music that has
the danceable qualities and bluesiness of the best R&B
along with the adventurous solos and impeccable
musicianship of jazz.

On Live At Voce (Deluxe Edition), Gadd is joined by
Joey DeFrancesco (arguably the World's greatest organist),
the passionate baritone-saxophonist Ronnie Cuber, and the
versatile guitarist Paul Bollenbeck. Together they create grooves
and hard-driving swing that are reminiscent of the best organ
groups of the 1960s including an early George Benson band that
featured Cuber. The infectious rhythms, catchy material,
and colorful ensembles make this band impossible to resist.

For this project the quartet, which has been together since
2007, is heard at a popular club in Scottsdale, Arizona.
“Watching The River Flow," which is based on “Swanee River,"
has exciting solos by all four musicians. The one-chord vamp
“Way Back Home" gives Ronnie Cuber a chance to preach on
his horn. “Undecided" is taken at a burning tempo that is perfect
for the musicians, with DeFrancesco showing why he is
considered the master of his instrument. “Bye Bye Blackbird"
starts out with a surprising duet between Gadd on brushes and DeFrancesco, who is heard on a muted trumpet a la Miles Davis.
“Them Changes" finds the group rocking out on an R&B groove
that alternates with some furious straight ahead jamming.

Cuber is featured on a heartfelt rendition of “Georgia On My Mind."
“Back At The Chicken Shack" has the Gadd band returning to the
blues, really digging into the music. Horace Silver's “Sister Sadie"
is given quite a ride by the musicians, with this being the most
stirring performance of the heated set.

As a bonus, the deluxe version of Live At Voce concludes with
a pair of intriguing duets ("Here I Am Now" and “Down") by Gadd
and singer/songwriter Edie Brickell. Gadd and Brickell lead the
newly formed band, The Gaddabouts, featuring
Andrew Fairweather Low and Pino Palladino.
