Nate Smith Vol 3 Pocket Change$ 49.00
For nearly two decades, Nate Smith has been a key piece in reinvigorating the international jazz scene with his visceral, instinctive, and deep-rooted style of drumming. He holds a diverse and ample résumé — which includes work with esteemed leading lights such as Dave Holland, Chris Potter, José James, John Patitucci, Ravi Coltrane, Somi, and Patricia Barber, among many others. In recent years, through a series of viral videos, he has emerged as one of the most influential and popular pocket/groove drummers of his generation. His videos have been viewed millions of times and have inspired countless musicians and fans.
Now, 2X GRAMMY nominee Nate Smith returns with his third Loop Loft release Pocket Change. 11 unique sessions of super deep groove and feel, each composition uses simple grooves as a launching pad, and to develop improvised thematic ideas within groove context to create a storytelling arc.
Recorded in April of 2017 at Bunker Studios, NYC, all of the beats were improvised to click track in odd and even time signatures.
“The idea of this release is to use (seemingly) simple grooves as a launching pad,” Smith says. “My goal was to develop improvised thematic ideas within groove context to create a storytelling arc.”
