Music and insight from two of the leading drummers on the scene. Mark Guiliana performs live in concert with his jazz quartet and Makaya McCraven shares his musical inspirations.

More highlights from a standout set by drummer Mark Guiliana and his jazz quartet, recorded live at Ronnie Scott’s in London.

Mark Guiliana is one of the most sought-after drummers on the contemporary scene, with a signature style informed by the rhythms of electronica, R&B and hip hop as well as jazz. His long list of credits includes David Bowie’s Blackstar and collaborations with piano great Brad Mehldau and singer Gretchen Parlato.
