The Trio featuring Johnny Vidacovich, Ike Stubblefield and Grant Green Jr.

We just love drummer Johnny Vidacovich, and what’s not to love. Anyone who has ever been to Jazz Fest in New Orleans has most likely seen and heard Johnny on drums, most likely more than once, quite possibly in the same day. One of the more sought after drummers in New Orleans (he played with the likes of Professor Longhair and James Booker) and the man who mentored Galactic’s Stanton Moore returns to High Sierra with a groove-alicious trio featuring B-3 organist Ike Stubblefield. Ike caused quite a buzz when he hit New Orleans for an array of gigs last year. With his impressive resume, which includes starting out playing Motown revues back in 1968, then moving on to work with George Benson, B.B. King and Johnny Adams, studio work and more, it was no wonder that New Orleans musicians sought him out when he hit the Crescent City. The Ohio native and Atlanta resident hooked up with Johnny V and they added the fine jazzified stylings of guitarist Grant Green Jr., the son of the legendary jazz guitarist Grant Green, to round out the trio. Drummer Herlin Riley remarked of Ike, “Ike plays with a lot of energy and velocity, he’s one of a few old-school artists who understands the groove.” Indeed.
