Michael Shrieve’s Spellbinder
“10. Michael Shrieve The musical highlight of the original Woodstock concert in 1969 may well be Santana’s 10-minute performance of “Soul Sacrifice.” Drummer Michael Shrieve holds the whole thing together, and Santana was never quite the same after he left in 1974. Since then he’s worked with Sammy Hagar, Todd Rundgren and many others – but he remains best-known for Santana. Fans long for his return to the group, but earlier this year Carlos Santana married his current drummer Cindy Blackman, making Shrieve’s return even more unlikely than before. ” Andy Greene, Rolling Stone Readers Pick Best Drummers of All Time
“…this is Spellbinder and muted trumpet, shimmering Hammond B3 and occasional employment of bass synth and guitar synth combined to create an altogether distinctive musical identity. The music merged rock, jazz fusion and funk, blurring the lines at every turn. Shrieve’s drumming these days eschews overt showmanship, and there is plenty of space in his playing, with the needs of the music coming first. With Farko Dosumov on bass, the pair formed a deeply grooving rhythm section, laying a base from which guitarist Danny Godinez, trumpeter John Fricke and Hammond B3 player Joe Doria created ever-evolving soundscapes.” Ian Patterson, All About Jazz
“An elegant jam band of the first order that mixes rock with jazz in equal and exciting measure. This beautifully conceived quintet takes its name from guitarist Gabor Szabo’s tune, which is best known from its brief appearance at the end of Santana’s hit, “Black Magic Woman.” Shrieve’s unit contains trumpeter John Fricke, offering a taste of 70s-era Miles, organist Joe Doria, guitarist Danny Godinez and bassist Farko Dosumov—all fellow Seattle residents.” Douglas Payne, All About Jazz
