"Live at Voce is the debut CD from a band that has been touring off and on since 2007. Though Steve Gadd is a master of many genres, it would seem that this is the type of music he truly enjoys playing the most. This is not a 'drummers record' per se. It is a quartet playing well aware of each others talents, as if nobody wants to be the weak link. The music seems to breathe with its deep grooves and emotional expressionism. Live at Voce was recorded in an intimate setting in Scottsdale, Arizona, at Voce's Lounge. It's recorded as if the band is playing right in front of you. You can hear the ambiance of the gig; counting off the tunes, just enough of people cheering and clapping, and the clinking of an occasional glass."
