Drummer Steve Gadd, the man responsible for some of the most memorable grooves and explosive drum solos on record, is often looked at as a perpetual sideman and session giant. Gadditude finds the man of the hour fronting/backing a band that's been backing Taylor for years. Together, without Taylor, they deliver a program that's alternately about fun, feel and depth. Gadd's partners on this journey—bassist Jimmy Johnson, trumpeter Walt Fowler , guitarist Michael Landau and keyboardist Larry Goldings—are all supremely gifted players with shared musical values, making them ideally suited for this project.
