small_collective-anniversary.jpg Various Artists: Drummers Collective 25th Anniversary Celebration Also Available At: Item: HL320391 $29.99 Now Available! Individual Artist Performances and Interviews via Instant Download! Featuring: Steve Gadd and the Gadd Gang , Dave Weckl and His Band, Steve Smith, John Patitucci, Victor Wooten, Horacio El Negro Hernandez, The Collective Faculty Bands. On Sunday, November 24, 2002 The Drummers Collective celebrated its 25th Anniversary with an incredible evening of music in NYC. The Collective has been a haven for musicians from all over the world, since 1977. Steve Gadd and the Gadd Gang closed out the day, with their first performance in ten years. Steve started off his set solo with a brilliant rendition of Bye Bye Blackbird and then did the rudimental solo, based on Crazy Army, that has become a trademark. The Gadd Gang, featuring Cornell Dupree on guitar, Eddie Gomez on bass, Ronnie Cuber on baritone sax, and Larry Goldings on Hammond B3, capped everything off with a set of soulful R&B. Dave Weckl and The Dave Weckl Band, featuring Tom Kennedy on bass, Steve Weingart on keyboards, and Gary Meek on sax, performed a burning set that culminated with a drum solo that brought the house down, showing all of the swing and explosiveness that has led to Dave being recognized as one of the top drummers of his generation.

It has been a long time since I have found something worthy of reviewing, but here it is. The DRUMMERS COLLECTIVE 25th ANNIVERSARY is great jazz/improv music and a lot of it at that. (OVER 5 hours worth!!!) The 2 disc set features 4 drummers and 2 bassists that are possibly the best at their instruments. The second disc has many bonus features that are interesting if you ever get past the first disc.
Disc one starts out with the Dave Weckl band. Weckl has always been a great drummer and ,unlike many other drummers, he can write great compostions as well. The set that his band goes through is similar to the 'VERY LIVE' 2 disc set. The cameras focus on Weckl as he shows his ability to go from Jazz/Latin Jazz/funk in a great collection of Weckl Tunes. The man can do it all. He has been called a 'Gadd Clone' but he has developed his own style that is amazing. An in demand drummer at the height of his powers.
Horacio 'El Negro' Hernandez joins John Patitucci and Oriente Lopez for a Latin Jazz set. Lopez wrote all of the music and it is great latin jazz which isn't typical of the genre. If there is a better Latin Jazz drummer than Haracio out there I'd love to hear him. John Patitucci is amazing as always. He somehow manages to play over changes while he maintains the link between bass and drums. He is one of the greatest complete bassists around. (Other than Stanley Clarke I can't think of a bassist that is a virtuoso on both upright and electric) Great Latin jazz from a trio that I'd love to catch live. Horacio defies convention and is a must for anyone to hear. What he does with his left foot is better than what most drummers do with all of their appendages. He outdoes his playing on the Montreal Drumfest DVD. A feat that I thought was impossible.
Victor Wooten does his thing next.

This is an excellent collection of some of the world's finest players in the drumming and bass world. As a drummer (could you guess from my id?), I eat this stuff up. Dave Weckl's performance absolutely blew me away and is worth buying the DVD just to see his playing. This performance demonstrates why Dave is one of the best drummers out there. Horacio plays a good set with John Pattatucci who proves himself to be a master. Steve Smith does a fine job as well and Victor Wooten is phenomenal. The Steve/Victor sequence is a real joy to watch as these 2 talented musicians dig deep to demonstrate their capabilities. Steve Gadd plays a smooth, 'pocket-filled' set that rounds out the performance. His simple yet masterful playing highlights why he is so popular. The performances by the Collective's people are the only down side to the DVD or I would have given it a 5. They're not bad, but they're not worth putting another DVD's worth of material. If your into the backstage stuff, there's plenty of that too (I'm not but I don't mind it on there). If this was a single DVD for 1/2 the price, it would have been perfect. A must see for serious drummers.

This DVD is a must have for drummers and bass players. What an
incredible lineup. I have seen Dave Weckl perform a lot and I think this is his best recorded performance. Steve Smith and Victor Wooten are worth the price of this dvd by themselves. Horacio shows why he has raised the bar for latin drumset playing. And then there is Steve Gadd-no one plays the drums like he does and the camera work and sound make it like you are sitting in the audience. There are great interviews with
all of the performers and some really cool behind the scene footage. And for bass players John Patitucci and Felix Pastorius are amazing. At over 5 hours, sit back and enjoy the show.

a concert feature Dave Weckl , Steve Smith and Steve Gadd, three of the best role model of all drumemrs, it's always fun to see them play, and the solo of Victor Wooten is just as inspiring as always, and "El Negro" Hernandez, John Patitucci, Oriente Lopez play some odd-metre Latin songs, which is very complex, but these guys just did that like nothing....

so you can see 3 of the most important drummers and 2 of the most important bassists, on 1 DVD, excellent sound quality, what else should i say? GET IT!!

this is the best concert dvd i have ever seen. the performances are all amazing and it has the best sound and camera work to date. every angle is exactly what you want. and all of the bonus features are incredible. you get to watch Steve Smith and Victor Wooten "compose" their song.
Not only is it entertaining and inspiring to watch, but it is also educational with the behind the scenes footage.might have the best Dave Weckl performance I've ever seen. well done Hudson Music.

Yes, it's a drummer's vehicle, but I know several non-drummer musician friends who are equally knocked out over the superb musicianship on this set. Kudos to Hudson for going all out and producing a world-class documentation of this event! Put it this way: I immediately burned the audio of most of this to CD, and it's constantly playing as I'm out and about...great mix, awesome camera angles ( okay, yeah, maybe the visual does feature the drummer a lot! ), and a sense of profound camraderie...not only among the stellar musicians, but among the audience members as well ( presumably which was comprised of eighty percent drummers!). My only complaint is that, to see Steve Smith's musical ensemble, Vital Information, you have to pick up Hudson's Modern Drummer Festival 2003 DVD set. It also is worth the price of admission, but you've dropped a hundred dollars after buying both of these. Well...considering you'd pay easily that much to get a good seat to watch Britney Spears' electronic drummer, Hudson products are a good investment! Seriously...guitarists and keyboard players could learn a valuable lesson from watching what events such as Drummers Collective and the annual Modern Drummer Festival do to inspire drummers from all over the world.
