Jazz Backstage: Harvey Mason (Mulligan/Baker)

April 6, 2011 Off By The Jazz Messenger

Drummer Harvey Mason has contributed to a good number of major jazz recordings with Herbie Hancock, Freddie Hubbard, George Benson, Lee Ritenour, Donald Byrd, Bob James and many more. His ability to swing hard as well as lay down a funky beat are signatures of his playing but he is also well known for his precision time keeping, tasty riffs, warmly tuned drums and dynamic cymbal work. Harvey is a living legend and one of the greatest drummers of all-time and on this Jazz Online Jazz Backstage podcast, he revisits his role on the CTI classic recording Carnegie Hall Concert featuring Gerry Mulligan and Chet Baker. – JV
