The famed Police drummer Stewart Copeland knows how to put a proper ensemble together. He recently joined forces with Rush’s Neil Peart, Tool’s Danny Carey, South Park co-creator Matt Stone, and Vertical Horizon frontman Matt Scannell for his Super Groove jam session series at The Sacred Grove. Copeland released a 4-minute video clip, “A Little More Noise”, through his personal YouTube account for the world to enjoy.
Stewart Copeland commented on the epic session in his video description. “Some new drums arrived so Peart and Carey came over to lay heavy hands upon them. Scannell and I banged out any old riffs while Stone chimed the gongs. Couple days later four MORE drummers dropped by and took up the horns. The piano was an afterthought.” The group was also joined by musicians Mike Dolbear, Thomas Lang, Dave Elich, and Aaron Sterling.
The clip starts out with Peart asking if the group was ready to make “a little more noise.” The line is echoed throughout the video as the jam jumps into a funky groove. I highly recommend giving this video a quick watch as a way to temporarily break out of those mid-week blues.
