"Since those jams in the garages and basements of Chicago where we formed our early musical perceptions, Darryl and I had intersected on a Pee Wee Ellis album, Blues Mission and several gigs in NYC. I was working on my first few solo CDs after stints with Elvin Jones/McCoy Tyner and various member of the AACM back then. Darryl was gaining a strong reputation for his unshakable groove as he lent his sound to the likes of Sting and Miles".
"Will Calhoun has always been a close musical partner of mine with his interrogations into Black Atlantic beat zone and, because of his ever readiness to partake in far-flung musical enterprises of a hazardous nature, he was a perfect fit".
"We took the band on the road in Europe. During the 2011 tour, we established most of the ten pieces that would become the debut album: Stone Raiders, Truth to Power".
In 2020 Stone Raiders are back together, on a quest for new discoveries and fresh musical realms.
