STEVE GADD Up Close DVD - 1983

The format of this "instructional" DVD is an interview,
with Steve Gadd not only answering the questions, but
demonstrating in response. While this is not as warm and
personal as, say, Tommy Igoe's approach that is epitomized
in his instructional "Groove Essentials", it nonetheless gives
you keen insights into Steve Gadd's techniques
and underlying philosophies.



 
 
   

STEVE GADD In Session DVD - 1985

Imagine that the top studio drummer of the 20th century
decides to work on some material and jam with some of
his very talented colleagues. Imagine that Steve Gadd
invites you to come over and watch from right next to
him so you can not only hear but actually see this guy
execute some of the most amazing chops ever laid
down on a drum kit. Would you in a million years
turn down that invitation? This dvd is like being there.

STEVE GADD ADAA DVD -2004

Renowned record producer Phil Ramone sums up this
much-deserved, six-plus-hour tribute by stating, "You've
got to study Steve Gadd for a long, long time to realize
how brilliant he is." This lengthy program, from the
Zildjian-sponsored 2003 American Drummers Achievemen
t Awards, allows the viewer to do just that. A biographical
documentary on Steve's amazing career and a heartfelt
video tribute to the late Armand Zildjian are informative
and inspiring. Guest speakers include bassist Anthony Jackson
and Louie Bellson. Musical highlights include performances
by Rick Marotta and Vinnie Colaiuta driving and all-star band.
The show culminates in a dynamic performance by Gadd
with James Taylor. High-profile interviews (Eric Clapton,
Chick Corea, etc.), rehearsal footage, and a lengthy
discussion with Gadd make this a valuable piece
of drumming history, well worth the investment.
