Live at Voce is the debut CD from a band that has been touring since 2007. Even though Gadd is a master of all genres, it's easy to tell that this is the type of music he most enjoys playing. The music seems to effortlessly breathe with its deep grooves and emotional expression. Live at Voce was recorded in an intimate setting in Scottsdale, Arizona, at Voce's Lounge. If you listen with headphones on, it's as if the band is playing right in front of you.

One of the most influential drummers of all time, Steve Gadd set a new standard in contemporary drumming techniques and performance, and in doing so, launched a thousand imitators. Recording legendary drum tracks on such memorable hits as Aja, Fifty Ways to Leave Your Lover, Late in the Evening, and Nite Sprite, there is hardly a drummer today who has not been affected by Steve Gadd.
2010 has been a remarkable year for Steve Gadd. Between tours, recordings and performances with world-renowned artists such as Eric Clapton, James Taylor, David Sanborn and Edie Brickell, he somehow also managed to record and produce Live at Voce. Hear why Paul McCartney, Paul Simon, Al Jarreau, Bob James, Eric Clapton, James Taylor, Carly Simon, Jon Bon Jovi, Chick Corea and Michael McDonald place Steve Gadd among the best drummers in recorded music history.
