1 For anyone interested on Thu Jul 09, 2009 7:02 pm

I recently recorded some tracks for an artist here in Philly named Carsie Blanton.

www.myspace.com/carsieblanton

If you go to her player on her page, there's a couple of tracks there ''Please'' and ''Baby can dance''

Just wanted to share some fun music with you all.

Have a great day!

Great songs! Both of them!!!! You always know JUST what to do David. In truth, there's not a whole bunch of players that have the ability to execute what they do in such a way that it compliments and helps to lift a musical project to a place where it takes center stage and is allowed to shine, without that player pulling the listener toward him or herself and away from the music as a whole.

You are a master at this and yet it is only one of the reasons why I love your playing so much. Thank you for the lesson.... Seriously!

Wonderful, D.L. Thank you for sharing this.

Beautiful stuff, Dave. I second Don's emotion. So solid the way it's supposed to be . . . so solid you don't even hear it because it blends so well. My latest youtube favorite:

Thanks Woofus,

I learned the feel for the songs on that session right there with the artist, so there really wasn't much extra thought going into it which is a good thing sometimes.. Just play the esscence, and it sorta plays itself in some cases.

Than you for listening, and I love the video you posted..only Stevie can pull that off man!----Great

The Philly-based Dixie Hummingbirds lost legend Ira Tucker about a year after that was filmed. A huge influence he was to the likes of people such as James Brown. A documentary about the group which began in 1928 came out last year. Ira Tucker joined in 1938 at age 13.

Looks like Steve Gadd playing drums on "Love Me Like A Rock".

Great observation, Woodman... I didn't notice that before!

Wow, Woody, I think you're right! That's gotta be Gadd! The hair and height of the HH . . . and, of course, the strong Paul Simon connection. I must have viewed it 30x in the past few weeks and never realized . . .

Hi Dave,

"Please" has a nice treatment by you in support of the song. Your strong transparency allowed my listening to the lyrics. I enjoyed the tune, while hoping to find "Baby can dance."

Strangely, Carsie's mood is similar to Mac Davis' when he wrote "Baby Baby Don't Get Hooked on Me."

Baby Don`t Get Hooked On Me(M.Davis)
Girl, you're gettin' that look in your eyes
And it's startin' to worry me
I ain't ready for no family ties
Nobody's gonna hurry me
Just keep it friendly, girl, 'cause
I don't wanna leave
Don't start clingin' to me, girl, 'cause
I can't breathe
Baby, baby, don't get hooked on me
Baby, baby, don't get hooked on me
'Cause I'll just use you then I'll set you free
Baby, baby, don't get hooked on me
Girl, you're a hot-blooded woman-child
And it's warm where you're touchin' me
But I can tell by your tremblin' smile
You're seein' way too much in me
Girl, don't let your life get tangled up with mine
'Cause I'll just leave you
I can't take no clingin' vine
Baby, baby, don't get hooked on me
Baby, baby, don't get hooked on me
'Cause I'll just use you then I'll set you free
Baby, baby, don't get hooked on me
Baby, baby, don't get hooked on me
Baby, baby, don't get hooked on me
'Cause I'll just use you then I'll set you free
Baby, baby, don't get hooked on me

You sound great Dave!

Great great stuff!!! Your orchestration is so smooth! Your playing is so much inside the song, couldn't imagine it better. What kind of drums are you playing?
Congrats!!

I liked the song Itches and Tugs out of the 5 I listened to the best. Are you playing on that one too ?

I also liked the snare sound on O Gabriela . Was that you too Dave ? If so, were you doing a buzz roll there or was that done with brushes, or what ?


Enjoyed them. thanks for posting and sorry I didn't get to them sooner !


Peace, TED

Hi Niki,
Thanks man- For that session, I used a 24'' 1930's Ludwig Bass Drum, 1972 Rogers Toms 13 and 16'' and a Craviotto Snare 8x14 with Istanbul Cymbals.

Ted- There were several Drummers that played on that record. I played on the single''Please'' as well as Baby can Dance, and Two at a time. Fred Berman also played on the record with me, I think he did all the slow brush stuff..he's currently playing with Amos Lee .

Notice the kit! Notice the environment (studio)! Notice the finesse. Steve Gadd since his early years has spent decades with his instrument here in America. I remember seeing him on the Ed Sullivan TV show years before I really focused on being a drummer.

More than anything, hear the music! We're all offsprings of someboday - and likely more than one. The two most influential in my life is Billy Cobham and Steve Gadd. Sure, I saw Max Roach play stuff with brushes face to face when I was in a loft in SOHO/NYC learning the mechanics of how to translate piano to vibes. Yet the wedge/divide was already there among some folks. I was touring and still learning that instrument. I miss those experiences.

Having already commented above (with Dave's acknowledgement), I can honestly say that the only time when less is more is when you have MORE in your chops to do less. Otherwise, too much will always come out with the subtle nuances. Steve personifies this.

Yet at other times, I hear Billy with his ferocity and musical abilities. Altogether, we really hear each other with the patience to receive what we hear. Just have the stuff in reserve to explode at the high points and lay back at the low points without dropping a beat among those who keep Time!
