Master drummer Michael Carvin has been a valued participant in the New York creative music scene since 1973, when he joined Freddie Hubbard’s band. Over the succeeding four decades, Michael worked with leaders ranging from Dexter Gordon and Ruth Brown to Pharoah Sanders and Alice Coltrane. He’s appeared on over 250 albums and is among the nation’s most respected drum teachers. Any band with Michael Carvin in the drum seat is guaranteed to swing – and this one, with fellow Texan/saxophonist Keith Loftis aboard, will be no exception! “Michael Carvin is no ordinary drummer,” declared Jon Hendricks, “he is a human rhythm machine.” Branford Marsalis calls Michael Carvin “a true jazz stalwart who has taught many of the major jazz drummers who have emerged in the past fifteen years.”
