On September 13, 2003, Steve Gadd was honored by the Avedis Zildjian Company at the second American Drummers Achievement Awards (ADAA) at the Berklee Performance Center in Boston, MA - a historic evening that included a special tribute to the late Armand Zildjian.
The once-in-a-lifetime event was hosted by Mr. Bill Cosby and featured an all-star band that included Vinnie Colaiuta and Rick Marotta on drums, Michael Landau on guitar, Jimmy Johnson on bass and Larry Goldings on keyboards. Special guest appearances by Will Lee, vocals and Tom Scott, saxophone!
The evening culminated in an incredible performance by Steve with James Taylor!
This double-disc DVD features over six hours of footage, including the evening's performances; exclusive rehearsal footage; a 20-minute documentary on Steve's career, narrated by Tony Levin; backstage interviews; rare, early film footage of Steve, and a video tribute to the late Armand Zildjian.
