Album Notes
J. D. Blair has two credos that resonate time and time again in his music: “Yo’ Dude, Ifn U Don’t Do Nuffin’else… GROOVE!!!!!!!” and then he backs it up with Psalm 150!
Basically it boils down to this – groove and praise.

His talent can be heard complimenting the artistry of Yolanda Adams, Sam “Shake” Anderson, India.Arie, Bootsy Collins, Yo-Yo Ma, Donnie McClurkin, Rod McGaha, Natalie MacMaster, Point of Grace, Mike Stern, Take 6, Kirk Whalum, CeCe Winans, Joseph Wooten, and Victor Wooten. “The Groove Regulator” has played with some of the biggest names in country music including Wynonna Judd, Lyle Lovett, Shelby Lynne and one of the biggest names in music history, Shania Twain which earned him the 2000 DRUM! Magazine’s Country Drummer of The Year Award.

Along with a host of video and worldwide TV appearances, J. D. has received many awards for his accomplishments but his most-prized accomplishment to date is the completion of his third CD, aptly named, “3HREE”. With a host of renowned guest artists, J. D. flexes his musical chops and delivers something for everyone. He has neatly encapsulated his musical passions and influences into 13 blistering tracks that make you simply groove. Up next is information regarding "3HREE".
