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:
I attended the 2005 leg of this clinic in Phoenix. Before the clinic began, Steve took the time to meet every person waiting in a long, long line to see him. When it was my turn to meet him, he looked me in the eye, asked me questions, and listened to me intently. He also signed the bottom of my K Custom Session ride cymbal (from the line that he helped design with Zildjian). Then as I started to walk away with my wife, Steve motioned for her to come back so he could meet and speak with her as well. He expressed this genuine interest in everyone he met at the event. He is truly a wonderful person. Steve employed a warm, conversational tone throughout the clinic that followed. He communicated his ideas and techniques in understandable ways, and he demonstrated them on the drumset. While watching him break down some of his grooves, a sense of awe engulfed me; yet at the same time I felt inspired and empowered to become an innovative drummer in my own right. GET THIS DVD!
