Bernard Purdie & Friends at The Falcon

June 28. Easily one of the greatest drummers in the realms of soul, R&B, funk, pop, and jazz, Bernard "Pretty" Purdie is also one of the most recorded musicians of all time: As of this writing, the Maryland-born percussionist has played on over 3,000 albums. Purdie, who leads this date at the Falcon, has laid down the beat for, among endless others, Louis Armstrong, James Brown, the Rolling Stones, Aretha Franklin, Joe Cocker, King Curtis, Isaac Hayes, B.B. King, Dizzy Gillespie, Tom Jones, and according to the drummer himself, the Beatles, on some tracks that were credited to a certain "Ringo Starr." Hmm. Anyway, here's your chance to get a first-hand glimpse of the man's genius, in wonderfully close quarters. (The Taylor Eigsti jams June 8; the Jim Campilongo Trio strums June 20.) 7pm. Donation requested. Marlboro. (845) 236-7970; Liveatthefalcon.com.
