Dennis Chambers, Big City

Dennis Chambers was voted one of the 100 greatest drummers of all time in Rolling Stone Magazine. They also mentioned his solo albums Big City, Getting Even, and Outbreak. Dennis can be heard on all of my albums on Geometric Records and I'm proud to mention that I wrote and produced his first solo project "Big City" for Pearl Drums. Dennis came in 63rd on the list but is number one in my book!
