Hello Talkin' Chop fam,
It is another beautiful day, so let's have seat, get a kool drink and talk to another great drummer. Once again I have to thank Andre Boyd for introducing me to this kat. Emanuel is a brother that I only heard about maybe two yrs ago, when I started listening to Gregory Porter. I gotta tell ya' I really dig this kats playing and the fact that he gets to ride a spectrum of genres in his work on the Porter gig. His playing is always appropriate to the song and the vibe and it feels so good.
For me, he's one of those guys you don't know how good he is until you just sit and listen to him play. I believe that's a good sign because that means you are paying attention to the music and the song and not one individual. That's making music!
Now he's taking time out to share with us a little of what he's all about and his very busy gig. I hope you all enjoy Emanuel Harrold Talkin' Chop.
*make sure you put on Gregory Porter's Take Me To The Alley album while reading this interview.

What a kool thing to have someone like Emanuel take the time to share with us, a little of his drum life.
This kat is WORKING! To be on such a great gig with some great musicians has to be very rewarding.
Emanuel, Thanks 4 taking the time my brother. We really appreciate it.
I want to wish you continued success with all of your endeavors.
See, Sometimes those nice gigs just come to you...By working hard and making relationships and being professional, these seemingly, 'once in a lifetime" situations do come around. It's now up to you to make it happen and grow it from there.
Thx all of you who read Talkin' Chop. I'm glad you're diggin' what I'm trying to do.
So, let's keep it going!
For anyone interested or know a drummer who could use some attention and add to their bio/epk.
Or maybe you just want to do it for fun, that's kool too!
