BERNARD PURDIE 2:00-3:00

Bernard Purdie is laughing and playing a black diamond pearl drum set.

Colleagues describe his style as the "funkiest soul beat" in the business,  and Purdie has decidedly never limited his talents to the realm of jazz but rather has consistently sought out new musical experiences beyond it's borders. He has anchored sessions with the Rolling Stones, James Brown and Tom Jones with equal ease and proven that - with all his attention to precision playing - terms such as "DRIVE" and "GROOVE" are definitely not missing from his vocabulary.
