The week of the drummer continues on the JFS. On Tuesday it was Jimmy Madison and yesterday was Ed Greene. Ed was the session drummer on the west coast. Quoting Ed, "you wanted to play bingo with your calender...."

The groove merchant, Ed was the drummer for Barry White, Hull and Oates and Willie Hutch. However, he only heard himself when a single was cut and played on the radio.

I became infatuated with Ed Greene on the Donald Byrd album Ethiopian Knights. They left the tape running to start the session and it picks up Ed trying to get the groove for 2-3 minutes. Once Wilton Felder finds the pocket the hypnotic Afro-Beat rhythm ensues and its off to the races.

Dig It!
