Bernard Purdie : Which musician did Aretha Franklin definitely NOT want missing from the line-up when she recorded her most inspired albums at the beginning of the seventies Who provided the back-beat for Steely Dan’s Aja, and for whom have Isaac Hayes, Donny Hathaway, B.B. King, Sweet Lou Donaldson, Joe Cocker and Hank Crawford reserved that stool behind the drum kit?

@facebook : Purdie is considered an influential and innovative exponent of funk and is also noted for a “rolling” shuffle beat he calls “the Purdie shuffle”. Two examples of “the Purdie shuffle” can be heard on Steely Dan’s “Home at Last” and “Babylon Sisters”.

@last.fm : In 1960 and Bernard Purdie started playing with Lonnie Youngblood before going on to work with King Curtis, and in 1970, Aretha Franklin, eventually becoming her musical director for five years.
