has long cemented his reputation as one of fusion's premier drummers--hell, even Billy Cobham thought two was better than one and hired him as a second drummer. Husband's flexibility has seen him drum in the NDR Big Band, with jazz-funk outfit Level 42, and in a trio format with guitarist Robin Trower and bassist Jack Bruce

Since the early '90s he has built an impressive discography as a leader which underlines his status as a composer of note. Two solo- piano albums, bold and personal interpretations of the music of guitarists and fellow Yorkshiremen, Allan Holdsworth

Hotwired sees Husband at the head of a vibrant, pulsing acoustic quartet which recalls the best of Tony Williams' combos. It also reveals another side of Husband's drumming which has the snap and crackle of Elvin Jones no less.



AAJ contributor Ian Patterson spoke at length with Husband about parallel and sometimes intersecting careers as a drummer and keyboardist, working with John McLaughlin, Allan Holdsworth and, most importantly, his hot new group, Drive, and its debut album on Abstract Logix, Hotwired.
