Legendary drummer Harvey Mason returns to Jazz Online's Jazz Backstage podcast and this time he's reflecting on his early studio days and working with producers Larry and Fonce Mizell. During his tenure working with the Mizells, Harvey recorded countless sessions working with everyone from Donald Byrd to Johnny Hammond to Bobbi Humphrey. Many of those recordings which had decent commercial success included Harvey's soulful drumming and are among the most sampled works in hip-hop. Listen as Harvey takes us on a trip down memory lane.
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
