Hailed by JazzTimes, Jazz Review, and the Philadelphia Inquirer, Craig McIver is Philadelphia's premier drummer and composer: this will be a rare date to see him leading his own band in concert.
According to Cadence Magazine, McIver's latest CD, A Horse of a Different Ryhthm was a revelation:
Drummer Craig McIver has been making waves as the drummer of choice for a number of Philadelphia's finest including Odean Pope
, Bobby Zankel
, Khan Jamal
and others...This is definitely a drummer's date...But McIver is going for something a little different with this release. ..this is one heck of a good record with first rate playing all around." - Cadence
