Bernard Purdie is from another planet

If you don’t know who Bernard Purdie is you’d be forgiven even though I think it’s a crime he’s not a household name.

But I’d bet my life that you’ve heard (and loved) a track he’s played on, seeing as he’s the world’s most recorded drummer. He’s the drummer that every part of my being would love to emulate, with such an obvious enthusiasm for percussion that’s nigh-on impossible to ignore.

One of his signature grooves is aptly named the Purdie Shuffle. There are some great tutorials on youtube that deconstruct his style admirably, but it’s only when you see it for real that you experience the joy that he finds and transmits when he plays.
