Backbeats and Forecasts ~ Star Drummers Shine in Orbit

Ten years ago, Montréal director John Walker's documentary, "A Drummer's Dream", exposed the thoughts and talents of world renowned drummers Nasyr Abdul Al-Khabyyr (Dizzy Gillespie), Dennis Chambers (Steely Dan & Santana), and (the late, great) Raul Rekow (Santana).

I was fortunate enough to be granted an hour-long interview on "Corby's Orbit" with these luminaries of percussion when we were still broadcasting out of CKLN.FM. We got up to some real talk about international drumming heroes, the inspirations of drumcraft and deep explorations of the universe of rhythm.

That hour is presented here again for your edification.

This week's show will also feature the best of new, progressive music that has been released into the ear-o-sphere since the great pandemic retreat began.
I will be including blues from the Maritimes, R&B from Manitoba and fresh excerpts from the global tunefulness that keeps nowadays songwriters busy all their lives.

There will be ample programming in recognition of June as Black Music Month.

Corby's Orbit airs Friday from 5-7 p.m. EDT on Radio Regent and at 9 p.m. Tuesday and midnight Wednesday on Blues & Roots Radio.

Wontcha come up and listen for a bit please?
