In 2006, the Zildjian company launched its third "Mission from Gadd" North American clinic tour giving drummers across the country an opportunity to experience Steve Gadd's humility, generosity, and creative genius firsthand. On this DVD, Steve is featured in an intimate master class setting at the Manhattan School of Music in New York City, May 2006.
Longtime fans of Steve-- as well as younger drummers just discovering him--will treasure Steve's wisdom and insights on a wide variety of topics: funk patterns, rudiments applied to the kit, playing with a click, tips for the studio, brush patterns, odd phrases, Mozambique/Latin ideas: it's all here. The extensive question-and-answer segments allow Steve to discuss several of his legendary performances, including "Aja," "Nite Sprite," "Late in the Evening" and "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover." Steve also performs solo pieces that contain the essential tools and techniques that comprise his incredibly influential style and approach.

Comments about Hudson Music The Master Series - Master Classes by Master Drummers DVD with Steve Gadd:
This was awesome to watch. Steve is just so relaxed with his playing and makes everything look so easy. to do what he does I will be practicing for a few years. Steve has something special, a real gift. Chic Corea describes talking with, and listening to music with Stev over a weekend. Monday Steve shows up with a new drum kit and an entirely new style of playing. Most of us will never come up to those standards but we can watch listen and learn from this incredible performer. Besides the master class the extra documentary about his carer is just great to watch also. This package shows why Steve has played with everyone that is somebody and sill going strong.
