Steve Gadd is of the most highly acclaimed and prolific drummers in history performing on thousands of recording sessions and live gigs. He has supplied the core rhythmic foundation on iconic recordings from an astounding list of artists such as Steely Dan, Paul McCartney, B.B. King, George Benson, James Brown and Al Jarreau, just to cite a tiny percentage of his discography. Steve will be backed by his stellar band featuring Walt Fowler on trumpet and flugelhorn, Jimmy Johnson on bass, Michael Landau on guitars and Kevin Hays on keyboards and vocals.

What’s On The Airwaves

If you are at work, out and about today or at home and are able to stream I highly suggest checking out WWOZ starting at 7:00 AM with a great two hours of music with Traditional Jazz with Leslie Cooper .

Following Leslie at 9:00 AM is a great program of rock, funk, Jamaican soul, and jazz The New Orleans Music Show hosted by Cole Williams.

At Noon Mark Stone takes over the airwaves with Soul Serenade one of the best blues programs this side of the Milky Way.

Following Mark at 2:00 PM is one of my very favorite jazz programs on the air Jazz From The French Market With T.R. Johnson..

Following Jazz From The French Market is another three hours of great music programming with 50’s R&B hosted by Neil Pellerin.

This evening at 8:00 PM check out KPFA 94.1 for Bebop Cubop and the Musical Truth two hours of jazz, world music, afro cuban and Latin sounds hosted by Avotcja. Highly Recommended!!

Video Pick Of The Week!!

Echo In The Canyon celebrates the explosion of popular music that came out of LA’s Laurel Canyon in the mid-60s as folk went electric and The Byrds, The Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield and The Mamas and the Papas gave birth to the California Sound. It was a moment (1965 to 1967) when bands came to LA to emulate The Beatles and Laurel Canyon emerged as a hotbed of creativity and collaboration for a new generation of musicians who would soon put an indelible stamp on the history of American popular music. Featuring Jakob Dylan, the film explores the beginnings of the Laurel Canyon music scene. Dylan uncovers never-before-heard personal details behind the bands and their songs and how that music continues to inspire today. Echo in the Canyon contains candid conversations and performances with Brian Wilson, Ringo Starr, Michelle Phillips, Eric Clapton, Stephen Stills, David Crosby, Graham Nash, Roger McGuinn and Jackson Browne as well as contemporary musicians they influenced such as Tom Petty (in his very last film interview), Beck, Fiona Apple, Cat Power, Regina Spektor and Norah Jones..
