[DRUM MAJOR] Bernard “Pretty” Purdie is one of the more national musical treasures in Portland’s orbit. He’s a New Yorker, but visits regularly for business and, certainly, pleasure. Watching the legendary jazz and R&B drummer onstage, it’s clear both amount to the same thing for him, even in this sixth decade of his career. His playing is as infectious as his bespoken beat, the so-called “Purdie shuffle,” has been influential. He’s toured with James Brown and Dizzy Gillespie, served as Aretha’s musical director and has—literally—countless other session credits to his name. History aside, though, he’s a brilliant musician in the here and now.
