The Gadd Gang - with Jon Faddis and others...

The Gadd Gang - from 1986, with Jon Faddis and others...Steve Gadd is close to my favorite drummer.  Like with all favorite anythings - they come and go.  When I first heard the out-tro drumming - or drum fills as they are also called - on the title track of Steely Dan's Aja.  I thought - wow!  Gadd is also the guy playing that classic lick in 50 Ways to Leave your Lover, by Paul Simon.  I think Gadd is now Eric Clapton's main drummer.  I also really like Abe Laboriel, Jr. as a current drummer.  He was also playing recently with Clapton, and now Sir Paul has him.
