239: “Airstrip One” by Bobby Previte’s Coalition of the Willing

I look 20% more like Draco Malfoy in this light.Bobby Previte is a prolific songwriting jazz drummer. He’s worked with dozens of the highest caliber musicians stardust can spawn. The Coalition of the Willing (active 2006-2007) rotated through several members that included Charlier Hunter, Skerik, Steven Bernstein, Jamie Saft and Robert Walter.

Previte’s songwriting is cinematic and grand, and it seems great musicians enjoy operating in the space he creates.

“Airstrip One” cracks wide open at about the 2:18 mark. Horns come in right at liftoff when the song turns funky.

You gotta be judicious with horns. And laxatives. And blondes. And blondes on laxatives.

Check out Bobby Previte if you get a chance. If you ever see him live, you will see that he works hard for the money. So you go on and treat him right.

Enjoy.
