One of the original figures from the late 70s and early 80s’ “downtown” scene in New York City, Bobby Previte’s reputation for artful and electrifying drumming and startling fresh compositions has only grown. In the 80s, the veteran drummer put together an amazing band called Bump that centered around the swinging trio of Previte, pianist and longtime associate Wayne Horvitz and electric bass legend Steve Swallow. They soon were dubbed the “Led Zeppelin of Jazz.”
For his third release on Palmetto Records, composer and drummer Bobby Previte brings us The New Bump, a logical musical extension of Previte’s original Bump The Renaissance bands. Sonically intriguing and cinematically centered, Set The Alarm For Monday grooves as only Previte can.
