Morning Cup of Soul: Bernard "Pretty" Purdie - Song for Aretha

Here is a nice mostly instrumental piece from the most recorded drummer in history. Mr. Bernard "Pretty" Purdie has played with Aretha Franklin, King Curtis, Hall & Oats, Donny Hathaway, BB King, Isaac Hayes, and a host of other very famous musicians. Here he is with a "Song For Aretha" and it's the grooviest, funkiest, Gospel inspired groove I've heard.

Exactly how many times have Bernard "Pretty" Purdie been recorded well he has laid the beat down on over 3,000 albums! He's one of my favorite drummers and it's just a plus that this song is a tribute to my favorite singer Aretha.
