What’s interesting about this concert?
Steven is one of the best at what he does. He’s been playing professionally for 40+ years and you can see that in his playing!
At the beginning of his career he was influenced by Buddy Rich, Louie Bellson, Joe Morelo, and many others. Later on in his career he became more interested in Fusion Jazz Drumming and following drummers such as Steve Gadd, Billy Cobham, and Vinnie Colaiuta. You can listen to Steve Gadd and get a taste here.
