For drummers, Steve Gadd is the shining example of a tasteful and technically well-schooled versatile drummer. Because this man can drum anything: he has recorded countless jazz classics and has performed with Al Di Meola, Tom Scott, Stanley Clark and many, many others. He made a name for himself mostly with other super stars of pop music, like Eric Clapton, Paul Simon and Steely Dan. He is an inspiration for many and his drumming is emulated by drummers all over the world. Gadd also inspires the band of top-notch musicians he will bring to Rotterdam. David Spinozza, who has worked with Paul McCartney and John Lennon, is the man on the guitar. Jimmy Johnson, who made a furore with James Taylor and Lee Ritenour, among others, will join them with his bass guitar. Walt Fowler (Ray Charles, Toto) on trumpet and keyboard man Kevin Hays (Brad Mehldau, Joshua Redman) complete his accompanying quartet.
