"Let's have a Purdie good time!"
Known for his precise musical time-keeping and his signature use of triplets against a half-time backbeat: the "Purdie Shuffle," Bernard "Pretty" Purdie is arguably the most recorded drummer in the world. He hit the New York music scene in the early 1960's, and landed his first hit with Mickey and Sylvia - the beginning of a stellar career.
This led to his 25-year association with Aretha Franklin. Purdie has been a regular guest in the studios of the stars of Jazz, Soul and Rock, working with Lonnie Youngblood, King Curtis, Les Cooper, Paul Butterfield, Larry Coryell, Miles, Davis, Hall & Oates, Al Kooper, Herbie Man, Todd Rundgren and Cat Stevens, as well as regularly producing his own studio albums.
Who provided the backbeat for Steely Dan's "Aja"? And for whom have Isaac Hayes, Donny Hathaway, B.B. King, Joe Cocker, Jeff Beck and Alan Jackson reserved that stool behind the drum kit? Bernard "Pretty" Purdie. He has anchored sessions with The Rolling Stones, James Brown and Tom Jones with equal ease.
The list is incomplete. It must be, because no other drummer in the last four decades has seen the interior of a recording studio as often as Bernard "Pretty" Purdie.
