Recognized as one of the top drummers in the world, Will Kennedy’s
performances have not only inspired a generation of musicians, but have
helped to define the leadingedge of contemporary jazz.
Will is a member of the internationally acclaimed group Yellowjackets for over nine years, recording ten records garnering an amazing fourteen Grammy nominations andaccolades that would fill as many pages. In addition to countless world tours, Will’s performances with the Yellowjackets included numerous television and radio broadcasts that spanned the globe.
Richard Spaven has supplied the drums for many artists on stage and in the studio. José James, Flying Lotus, The Cinematic Orchestra, Guru’s Jazzmatazz, Gregory Porter to name but a few.
Working closely with such a diverse range of artists must bare influence upon Spaven’s own compositions, in which some how the drums bridge the gap between the worlds of jazz and electronic music. Spaven’s debut release ‘5ive’s EP’ (Jazz Refreshed) in 2010 quietly turned heads.
