Richard Spaven

In demand drummer Richard Spaven is highly regarded on the scene after his decicive contributions to the sound of José James, Gregory Porter, The Cinematic Orchestra or Flying Lotus. Apart from that he is a always welcome guest at Überjazz. He appeared twice in José James’ band. In 2013 he saved Zara McFarlane’s show. Due to illness her drummer had to cancel on very short notice – an hour before stagetime. Spaven filled in spontaneously and it sounded like he’s never done anything else. This year sheds light on an intriguing project under his own name. It echoes the sound he helped shape.
