    Vulfpeck with Bernard Purdie: Something

    A couple of years ago, I ran into Bernard Purdie at NAMM and texted a picture to Vulfpeck’s Jack Stratton. He told me he wanted to do a session with him, perhaps “It Gets Funkier IV.” Last September, they made it happen. The drum legend joined the band for four shows in NYC. Here they... »
