Pete Lockett is without any doubt one of the best musicians there are nowadays. As percussionist, drummer and musician he is on the forefront for many years already. In 2016 he played at the Wienfelden International drum festival in Switzerland, and he was so kind to share his footage with us - and even send us commentaries with the videos.
We created a series of Director Cuts from the videos with commentaries about the videos from Pete himself. When listening to Pete about the tracks, suddenly those often hard to grasp percussion rhythms start to make sense. All the videos have Pete explaining about the tracks and the rhythms he is playing, and gives great background stories on the songs as well.

In our second of four Pete Lockett specials, Pete talks and plays 'Stairway to Seven' in two videos. This time we see Pete playing drums.
The videos were recorded at the Wienfelden International drum festival in Switzerland in 2016 and Pete shares them here on Drummerszone. We created a series of Director Cuts from those videos with commentaries on the music and rhythms from Pete himself.
'Stairway to Seven' has quite a mathematical approach, but the story behind it and when you hear Pete explain his idea, it isn't that difficult to try it yourself.
You can hear this phrasing in the track called 'Treke-Tay' on the 2017 album 'Melody of Rhythm' that Pete recorded with Indian tabla player Fazal Qureshi. Perhaps more of us should spend a few nights in Calcutta and wake up with creative ideas like this...
