Meet E.J. Strickland: Drummer E.J. Strickland is currently a member of the long-lived quartet of Ravi Coltrane (along with pianist Luis Perdomo and bassist Drew Gress), and his brother Marcus Strickland's celebrated electric/acoustic quartets and trio.
E.J. also leads his own bands, The E.J. Strickland Quintet and The E.J. Strickland Project. His playing has been described as emitting fields of cumulative energy, clouds of feather-touch and heavy-handed syncopations, latent with power like an oncoming storm" (Thomas Conrad, Downbeat Magazine).
