“When I hear his music, it inspires a freedom in me as an artist….And that’s only been generated by legends.” – Common

I’m proud to present the first of a few videos that I’ll be sending out from legendary drummer/producer Karriem Riggins. Not only has he produced and worked with hip hop staples such as J Dilla, Common, Slum Village, Erykah Badu, Talib Kweli, Madlib and others, he also has played drums for jazz legends such as Herbie Hancock, Bobby Hutchinson, Donald Byrd, Oscar Peterson, and Ray Brown.

Starting in June, Karriem Riggins will be embarking on his “Virtuoso Experience” w/ legendary jazz pianist, Mulgrew Miller, and w/ the help of DJ Dummy and Pete Rock on select dates.

We will be shooting out a few more videos leading up to the first date in Seattle, WA so definitely be on the look-out as folks can get a better in-depth look into the world of Karriem Riggins and his incredible talents….
