The drummer also keeps his Gaddabouts band, originally formed in the 1980s, on his radar. They did some work with singer Edie Brickell, "some projects that I think are really good," and the group has recorded its third record with Brickell. "It's all Edie's music. Hopefully it will be coming out soon. I'm very proud of that."

Gadd's career path, that includes teaching, has no bounds. It's treated him well and there is contentment in his voice. "When the guys are great players and they love to play, it's astonishing. In all situations, it's you giving as much as you can to an audience and hoping they'll get it and be moved by it. When that happens it's special."
