Performance by Chris Dave and The Drumhedz at Jazz en Tete Festival 2012. Chris Dave is considered one of the best drummers in the world because of his anachronistic playing. After having accompanied artists as different as Wynton Marsalis, Beyoncé or A Tribe Called Quest for a long time, he proposes with his group the Drumheadz, to revisit black music in the manner of a DJ who would chain the pieces of Jazz Messenger, Fela and Jimmy Hendrix.
Awesome a dynamic range, the polyrhythmic-harmonic magpie melange of styles and themes. The combination of groove and abstraction, togetherness and independence. The jazz / funk / rock innovation here sounds so comfortable and familiar. Awesome performance by every musician!! Definitely one of my favorite videos.
