Pat Petrillo Big Rhythm Band - Today Releases Single "Black Cow"! May 26th!

Drummer Pat Petrillo, who appeared on the February 2023 cover of Modern Drummer Magazine, follows up his single "48th Street", featuring Nile Rodgers, with a hot new radio track…a reimagined version of the Steely Dan classic, "Black Cow", this time featuring New York guitarist Oz Noy. Pat and the Big Rhythm Band blend his smooth, funky groove, with Oz's soaring, melodic guitar, a bluesy sax solo, and an amazing horn section that captures the backround chords of the original to perfection. A jazz radio programmers dream, "Black Cow" captures the vibe and beauty of the original, with a contemporary twist. Available on all streaming platforms.
