07.31.05LAURENCE ELDER "SURROUNDED" REVIEWED BY MAJOR DRUM MAGAZINES
In February of this year, an album in which I was involved not only as drummer but as co-producer was released. A big part of this project was recorded at my own studio DRUMIT STUDIOS. Having the privilege of working with two of the best artists of our times, Paquito D'Rivera and drummer extraordinare Peter Erskine, was an incredible experience. We are very excited about the reports people have once they get to listen to this album, but it is equally exciting to be recognized by MODERN DRUMMER MAGAZINE (September p155) (with a four stars review!!) and DRUM MAGAZINE (June p93).....We certainly appreciate the fact that even with this being an independent effort, they took notice of its high quality..Thanks, T Bruce Wittet for writing so nicelly!!! Thanks to Andy Doerschuk for your support.
