    Anybody got a good reference for somebody to do live drum tracks? I'm doing
    production on a bunch of funked-up gospel tracks (praise and worship music)
    and am wanting to hook up with a good groove drummer. Any ideas on cost per
    track? Would really like somebody that could take a Sonar compressed or midi
    file
    and return drum parts split across tracks (kick,snare,hat,cymbals,kit L/R).

    Have about 10 in this first batch. Need price/track and estimated turnaround
    time. Oh yea, a good funk/shuffle feel would be nice.

    two kinds of music, they are "Good" and "Bad".

    Hey There -

    I would recommend a guy named Charlie Morgan - here in Orlando, FL. He was
    Elton John's drummer for over 14 years, did the first three Kate Bush
    records, all the Nick Kershaw stuff in the 80's, the Tina Turner classic
    "Thunderdome", etc. He's also one HELL of a groove player.

    I've just finished up a smokin' gospel record with him - in fact, he's the
    drummer I use on all my stuff (check out his playing on several of my music
    examples on my website at www.lbsound.com).

    He's very affordable (like $125/song), has a great studio with the big black
    premier kit and mics used on Elton's "Made In England", and can email/FTP
    you the final tracks in a variety of formats. He just finished gospel
    songwriter of the year Michelle Tombes' (spelling?) new CD this way. Give
    him a shout at Manicdrums@mac.com - you'll NOT regret it.
