James Gadson is simply put, one of the most recorded drummers in the history of R&B music. Working with everyone from Marvin Gaye to Norah Jones, Aretha Franklin to Justin Timberlake, Gadson's prolific career easily spans 6 decades. In the 1960's, the funky soul group, Dyke & the Blazers featured James on "Let A Woman Be A Woman", which later was sampled by the Bomb Squad for Public Enemy's "Welcome To The Terrodome." James and other members of the Blazers ended up forming The Watts 103rd Street Band and Gadson wrote and sang on some of their best-known songs including "Dance A Kiss and A Song" and "Express yourself," which was later sampled by Dre for NWA's "Express Yourself". This was just the beginning of Gadson's prolific career.
