Enjoy this 3rd installment of the new artist "sessions" series, featuring exclusive performances by Gruv Gear endorsers!
"Donovan James" was composed by Jazz/Funk master David Dyson (Pieces of a Dream, Lalah Hathaway, Jonathan Butler, New Kids On The Block, George Duke) which he named after his son! Performed here with Portland bassist Damian Erskine (Peter Erskine New Trio, Gino Vannelli, Tony Furtado) and legendary drummer and Grammy winner Ricky Lawson (The Yellowjackets, Whitney Houston, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson).
