Myself, Mark Schulman (L), and Bruce Becker (R) hanging out with legendary drummers Roy Haynes and Freddie Gruber at one of Roy’s gigs in the early 2000s. Mark, Bruce and myself all studied with Freddie, and in 2014, we teamed up to create the “Triple Threat Drum Camp.”

Gregg Field throwing down with the Count Basie Orchestra in the early 1980s. Gregg’s childhood dreams of playing with Basie came true … but only because he was PREPARED when the opportunity presented itself.
