DENNY SEIWELL (Of Paul McCartney and Wings) An Evening of RAM, Featuring the Victor Company Players
Master Drummer, Denny Seiwell, a 50 year veteran of recording studios around the world is best known for his work as a founding member, alongside Paul McCartney, of the post Beatles band Wings. His drumming can be heard on the “Ram”, “Wildlife”, and “Red Rose Speedway” albums, which includes the hits “My Love” and “Live and Let Die”.
Denny has become a legend in the jazz genre as well, including recordings with Astrud Gilberto, JJ Johnson, and Kai Winding among many others. Years of touring, studio work, and gigging with some of Rock, Pop, Funk and Jazz’s most elite acts such as James Brown, Art Garfunkel, John Denver, Joe Cocker, Billy Joel, Donovan and others, led Denny to work with the London Symphony Orchestra in the groundbreaking version of The Who Rock Opera, “Tommy”. His one-of-a-kind drumming style can be heard on the theme song of the 1973 epic James Bond film, “Live and Let Die”, a masterpiece written by Paul and Linda McCartney.
His sound can also be heard stamped into many film scores on Hollywood Blockbuster films including Waterworld, the Postman, Dinosaurs, Atlantis, Traditional Places, as well as many TV shows of the day. At this stage of his career, Denny is qualified to perform anywhere in the world, however, roads have led him to a recognizable detour, realigning himself with two powerhouses in the jazz world. They are Joe Bagg, who has been called a “Master Organist” by the Los Angeles Times and John Chiding, best known for his work on Natalie Cole’s “Unforgettable” tour, who both complete the Denny Seiwell Trio.
Picking up where they left off after their critically acclaimed album “Reckless Abandon”, released a few years ago, Denny and the trio have completed a new album to be released in September 2018 name “BOOMERANG” under the Quarto Valley Records label. One of the 12 tracks include Paul and Linda’s tour de force “Live and Let Die”, however the trio gives it a preeminent Jazz spin that only the most skilled of players can pull off. This album is sure to shake up the Grammy’s “Best Jazz Album” category. Stay vigilant and look out for the Denny Seiwell Trio as they carve their path to Jazz Royalty.
