Dublinjazz.ie is extremely excited to bring you one of the top 10 drummers of all time, Steve Gadd. He will be performing with the Blicher Hemmer Gadd project, a fantastic organ trio with award winning Danish Saxophonist Michael Blicher and Danish organ wizard Dan Hemmer.
These guys have performed over 60 concerts together. They have developed a unique sound all their own and in the trio format each gets to display their incredible musicianship.
The drums are back!
This is a weird sentence coming from a drummer. Never the less this describes how Steve Gadd feels when he plays with Michael Blicher and Dan Hemmer in the band Blicher Hemmer Gadd. “This is honest Music. No one plays like this anymore.” Steve Gadd says. For the last 50 years he has played with Paul Simon, Steely Dan, Chick Corea, Eric Clapton, James Taylor, Paul McCartney, Chet Baker and the list goes on.
The sound of Blicher Hemmer Gadd
Together with the award winning saxophonist, Michael Blicher (known from the successful nordic afro-beat band The Kutimangoes) and hammond organ wizard, Dan Hemmer, Steve Gadd rediscovers the sound and feel of the drums playing almost acoustically. The sounds are coming directly from the drumskin, the bamboo saxophone reed and the turning tone wheels of the 50 year old Hammond organ and with the presence and communication of these three musicians, their instruments and an audience, music comes alive in a whole new way, which excites even a world legend drummer at age 73.
