Check out a ten-minute Sneak Preview and Behind the Scenes look at the Aaron Spears DVD Shoot!
On May 27 and 28, Hudson Music went into the studio to shoot a new DVD with Aaron Spears. The forthcoming DVD features Aaron performing with backing tracks and answering in-depth questions from an in-studio audience. A special feature of the project is the involvement of master drummer Jojo Mayer, who interviews Aaron both on and off the drum kit, “digging into his soul” to help demystify the deep groove, innovative approach and blazing fills that Aaron has made his trademark.
Aaron answers questions pertaining to his approach to each of the tracks, as well as his approach to preparing and performing some of the incredibly diverse material he is called upon to perform. Jojo digs in further still, discussing Aaron’s approach to shuffles, New Jack Swing, the infamous “James Brown” fill, and even Aaron’s shoes!
