First in a series of Chambers’ GrooveSets for DrumCore, “Rosanna-ish” includes 62 audio loops and fills for $4.99. Chambers’ audio loops are 24-bit/48kHz stereo grooves recorded at Secret Sound Studios in Baltimore by engineer John Grant.

Chambers began drumming at the age of four. In 1978 (at 18 years old), he joined Parliament/Funkadelic, and stayed with them until 1985, when he joined the John Scofield band. He was recruited by Doug Wimbish in 1981 to be the Sugar Hill label house drummer. Since then, he has played with Stanley Clarke, Sly Stone, Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, Santana, Steely Dan, Maceo Parker and many more.
