Simon Phillips & Trilok Gurtu Collaborate

Trilok Gurtu and Simon Phillips have long wanted to make music together, and they finally got their chance last in May. Their collaboration was captured on the upcoming release 21 Spices, which will feature the two drumming legends playing with Germany’s NDR Big Band. The recording is a mix of studio and live performances that document their appearance at the Drums’n’Percussion Festival in Paderborn, Germany on May 21, 2010, and the Elbjazzfestival in Hamburg, Germany. Pretty cool photo, eh?
