Michael Shrieve: Michael Shrieve's Spellbinder

Read "Michael Shrieve's Spellbinder" reviewed by Doug Collette

Despite a varied series of projects, prolific master drummer Michael Shrieve has maintained a comparatively low profile since his days as a member of the original Santana band.

Michael Shrieve's Spellbinder: Michael Shrieve's Spellbinder

Read "Michael Shrieve's Spellbinder" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Drummer Michael Shrieve's Spellbinder is not your garden variety group. It's a beast of band that slams, seduces, grooves, jams, and rocks in high gear. Should we expect anything less from the rhythmic motor behind Santana?

"Worlds Around the Sun" Reissued by Omnivore Recordings March 11

The music world of the early 1970s was a time of experimentation and activism.

Michael Shrieve's Spellbinder: Live At Tost

Read "Live At Tost" reviewed by Douglas Payne

Drummer Michael Shrieve was the rhythmic force behind the classic Santana band (1969-74) and the one Carlos Santana credits with introducing the guitarist to the music of Miles Davis and John Coltrane--quite something, since the guitarist has paid homage to both jazz legends many times since. Shrieve went onto to many other gigs that mixed the ...
