Jazz Backstage: Harvey Mason (Early Years)

June 16, 2011 Off By The Jazz Messenger

Legendary drummer Harvey Mason returns to Jazz Online’s Jazz Backstage podcast and this time he’s reflecting on his early studio days and working with producers Larry and Fonce Mizell. During his tenure working with the Mizells, Harvey recorded countless sessions working with everyone from Donald Byrd to Johnny Hammond to Bobbi Humphrey. Many of those recordings which had decent commercial success included Harvey’s soulful drumming and are among the most sampled works in hip-hop. Listen as Harvey takes us on a trip down memory lane. – JV
