StLJN Saturday at the Movies:
Spotlight on Terreon Gully

This week's videos showcase the very talented drummer Terreon Gully. Since moving to NYC a decade ago, the East St. Louis native has worked with a variety of musicians and groups in jazz, hip-hop and reggae, including David Sanborn, Stefon Harris, Russell Gunn, Burning Spear, Lauren Hill, Roy Ayers, Common, Christian McBride and many others.

Up top, you can see and hear Gully playing and soloing on Weather Report's "Boogie Woogie Waltz" with McBride's group, which includes the leader on bass, Geoff Keezer on keyboards, and Ron Blake on saxophones. Down below is a clip of a brief interview with Gully, who now makes his home in Atlanta.
