Session musicians, born tour performers or just “cats that were looked over, but they’re bad!, to borrow the words of their leader, Chris Dave. That’s what these Drumhedz are. Just to give you an idea, Chris Dave was the drummer of Adele, Justin Bieber, Dolly Parton, D’Angelo, Sonny Rollins and A Tribe Called Quest. Just six names randomly picked to show the width of the guy’s experience… But this time, the gang comes out of the shadows to feel the bright lights on their face. Their album is first and foremost a no man’s land where the notion of genre isn’t in use anymore, where elements of funk, soul, gospel, hip-hop and jazz are blended until they become undistinguishable and form a solid groove mass without actually being a lackluster jam session. Among the fifty or so musicians that compose these Drumhedz, you’ll find notably Pino Palladino (bass), Isaiah Sharkey (guitar), Cleo “Pookie” Sample (keyboard), Sir Darryl Farris (vocals), Keyon Harrold (sax), but also James Poyser (The Roots), Stokley Williams (Mint Condition) and Shafiq Husayn (Sa-Ra), not forgetting Anderson .Paak, Bilal, DJ Jazzy Jeff and Phonte Coleman. And the result—as groovy as can be—is just like this fusion of names: a fusion of rhythmically heavy sounds in which no one tries to take all the credit. It’s some pure groove.
