Brian Culbertson: “Heroes Of The Dawn” Behind the Scenes (with Jimmy Haslip)

I always love these behind-the-scenes videos in the studio. This one is no exception.

In this clip from 2013, we see pianist Brian Culbertson in the studio with The Yellowjackets rhythm section: Will Kennedy and Jimmy Haslip.

They need no introduction, but this clip is a clinic on drums and bass locking in the pocket. Once that metronome clicks and the red light comes on, they get serious! Listen to that LOCK.

The tune is “Heroes Of The Dawn” from the Brian Culbertson release, Another Long Night Out. Enjoy!
