Description


Drummer Frank Derrick III (born 1950) grew up in Harvey, Illinois in a musical family…his father Frank Derrick Jr. was a professional musician and arranger who played with notables such as Duke Ellington and Earl Hines. Frank Derrick III began playing the drums when he was ten years old and at the age of nineteen he was already playing professionally in the renowned Chicago jazz scene. Frank has led a multifaceted national and international music career. He is a virtuoso performer, composer, and educator. Next to his own recordings he has performed and recorded with numerous legends and artists including Stevie Wonder, Quincy Jones, Eartha Kitt, Roberta Flack, Donna Summer…and countless others.

On the album we are proudly presenting you today (You Betcha!) you’ll find recordings written by both Frank Jr. and Frank III. All songs are performed by one of his many incarnations: “THE FRANK DERRICK TOTAL EXPERIENCE”. Some serious all-star players from the likes of Bill Payne (John Cale-Lionel Richie) and Edwin Williams (Syl Johnson) can also clearly be heard backing up Frank here on this exceptional album.

You Betcha! was recorded in 1974 at the legendary Chicago nightclub Fiddler’s. The sound quality is top-notch and intimate with a noticeably vibe that conveys the enthusiasm of the audience. Only 1000 copies of this album were privately pressed back in 1974, so it comes as no surprise that this record continues to be one of the rarest sought-after vinyl albums by jazz collectors worldwide.
