Bernard "Pretty" Purdie & Purdie's Powerhouse

Story

After we'd decided to make food/cooking the theme for this live recording, Bernard suggested we write a few instrumentals for the project.  As I visualized what "Pretty" Purdie looks like while playing his drums, this tune came to me.  (The CD track is long, so in this clip I've just included the outro.)  I've played with many wonderful drummers, but Bernard is the only one who makes you feel like you've hopped aboard a train.  You can't help but get excited!
