Pretty Purdie

I've been drumming now for almost 11 years, and I've got a few drummers on my list as favorites; Pretty Purdie is absolutely one of them. When I first heard the title track of Soul Drums, I was instantly hooked to drumming. PERIOD. Because of this! The rest is history... Fast-forward to 2009, I'm STILL drumming, even though I have various drumming styles and my own original style, Bernard Purdie is still one of many drummers that influence me in my drumming. Now...I'm even more excited that Purdie is actually re-issuing his debut LP Soul Drums on Green Street Entertainment for the first time on CD and on digital format. It will also include 8 bonus tracks which happen to be unreleased tracks from Bernard's "lost" sophomore LP Alexander's Rag Time Band.
