Video: The Virtuoso Experience With Karriem Riggins

On a daily basis, I get a lot of bullshit in my inbox.

Stuff that has ZERO relevance to what we do. Sorry, but I don’t care that Soulja Boy has a new ringtone or that Puffy videotaped himself on the crapper. Miss me with that.

On the other end of the Bell Curve, we get material that I feel obligated to pass along but I can’t always find the thoughts & words to frame it. That’s the case with this one. So just watch the clip above, read & then check to see when Karriem will be in your area.

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” with legendary jazz pianist, Mulgrew Miller, and with the help of DJ Dummy and Pete Rock on select dates.
