Global Notes: The 'Planet Drum' Album
This week on Global Notes, we're going back 25 years.
Specifically, we're listening back to Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart's Planet Drum album, which brought together percussionists from around the world to create what Hart called a “new gumbo.”
The 1991 Grammy award winning album is being re-issued in December with a couple of new tracks. We hear one of them, plus a sampling of the originals.
