Ahoy People!
Let me introduce to you a pair of awesome musicians, that will definitely give some sugar to your life. I’m talking about Mike Stern and Dave Weckl! :).

Mike Stern was born in Boston and studied at The Berklee College Of Music.
He has played with Billy Cobham, Miles Davis, Marcus Miller, Bill Evans, Jaco Pastorious, Dennis Chambers, John Patitucci, and some other AWESOME MUSICIANS! come on, if you didn’t recognize any of the names listed above, start researching :).

Dave Weckl was born in St. Louis Missouri, and at the age of 16 he began to work professionally with some local pop and jazz groups. But then he got really good, and well, he got the opportunity to play with Chick Korea, Anthony Jackson, George Benson, Diana Ross and many other really good musicians that made Dave get richer musical

Both Experienced and the best ones on their genre, Mike Stern has established himself as one of the premier jazz, jazz-fusion guitarists and composers of his generation.
Dave Weckl is in the Hall of Fame of the Modern Drummer as “one of the 25 best drummers of all time”.
So imagine the music that each one of them has made in the last years… ok now imagine both Mike Stern And Dave Weckl playing along and you will get something like this. 😀

This song is called “Chromazone” from the album “Time in Place” I hope you like it.
Oh and here’s a funny thing, watch how Mike Stern is always moving his legs, hilarious. Enjoy 🙂

Awesome music, Awesome musicians, Awesome solos.
I bet you still got that song’s groove in your head, if you watch closely you can see how smiley Stern looks, but well, who wouldn’t be smiling like that when you have those musicians playing with you.
In this particular video, he is playing in Bulgaria With Dave Weckl (Drums), Richard Bona (Bass player) and Bob Malach (Saxofonist)


Mike Stern and Dave Weckl have been playing together for a long time. Mike has released 14 albums as a leader, and many other as a guest.
And Dave has been drumming for some of those albums.
Dave also spends some of his time working at his own studio in Los Angeles.

I had the opportunity of watching them play in november of 2010 in the “Riviera Maya Jazz Festival” at Playa del Carmen, México, beautiful place by the way, and actually I didn’t notice before but Richard Bona, the bass player shown in the video will play this november in the Festival.

So don’t let go any chance to watch these amazing musicians, because I can assure you that it’s worth it. 🙂
