V4YS Concert Review - Chris Dave & The Drumhedz - Live In Paris, New Morning - 241014

My favorite rhythm architect was back in town last week for another very special drummin' odissey.

After blowing me away with his first Drumhedz crew last year, Chris "Daddy" Dave gathered a new explosive team for this second tour, which will give birth to a proper LP, to be released in March 2015.

Marcus Strickland, Paris, 241014

In a sax / keyboards / bass formation, Chris once again offered a fascinating journey into the rhythmic foundations of Black music.

From  the 50/60's classic Jazz era to the 70's Hancock-fusion style sound, from Fela's afrobeat to the golden hip-hop years of the 90's, this true beats historian knows it all. His crazy covers are authentic creations, his freaky drum solos some kind of magnetic black hole, where we all end up slave to the rhythm.

Add to the mix three talented musicians, among whom Sax player Marcus Strickland, and you certainly do not want to miss the action of his upcoming tour dates.

A few video extracts below to get a grasp of the fun:

For the drums freaks around, some solos:
