POOGIE BELL. You are most definitely familiar with his work and music. The fact remains that this man behind the drum kit has laid down beats and rhythms for a myriad of clientele that reads more like a “Who’s Who” list in the music industry. Artists across the widest variety of music genres such as Marcus Miller, David Bowie, Chaka Khan, John Scofield, Vanessa Williams, Victor Wooten, Roberta Flack, Joe Sample, Al Jarreau, David Sanborn, Erykah Badu, Stanley Clarke, Angelique Kidjo, Randy Crawford, and Stanley Turrentine, have relied on Poogie’s unique syncopated rhythms and ultra-tight grooves as the backbone for many an album.
Armed with an impressive musical resume and infectious rhythms, POOGIE BELL pushes the boundaries of JAZZ, JAM ROCK, and FUNK into the stratosphere, offering up head bobbing, body moving rhythms that will get you moving in the car, streets, or in the concert venue. Poogie’s unique blend of jazz, funk, jam, and soul creates a style ALL his own.
On Poogie’s latest release with his band “THE POOGIE BELL BAND” and debut for locally based Holographic Records, “GET ON THE KIT”, Poogie and company prove not only can he lay down his trademark rhythms, but that he can compose music that will get you on your feet in a hurry. Joining Poogie on this amazing CD is fellow groove masters, Marcus Miller, who also co produced, Ian Gordon, Tony Campbell, Reggie Watkins, Kevin Barefoot, Juan Vasquez, Howie Alexander, along with Wah Wah Watson, Dean Brown, Bobby Sparks, Keith Anderson, Jacob Toffee, Chris Parker, Luke Williams, Eric Dan, & DJ Muggy. ALSO, not featured on any other release but the new CD, are amazing versions of Maurice White and Earth, Wind and Fire’s “Shining Star”, and Jimi Hendrix’s “Little Wing”, featured as bonus tracks.
