Tommy Igoe

Tommy Igoe has recorded with Lauryn Hill, Stanley Jordan, New York Voices, Blood Sweat and Tears, Dave Grusin, The Chieftains, Marc Mancina, Patti Austin, Mary Clayton, Darlene Love, Rita Coolidge and Dave Wilcox. After National, European and Asian tours with Art Garfunkel, he settled back into his New York life. Many know that he holds the Lion King drum chair but most don't know that he also is an assistant conductor as well! He plays sessions for recordings, film and TV all over New York, as well as in his private Music. In addition, he keeps a private teaching schedule as well as serving in the past as an adjunct professor to Rutgers University. Tommy has been hard at work on his published materials for students and teachers. Starting with the most anticipated package first, the tracks from his debut album, drums removed, titled 'The New Ground Tracks.' "At my clinics," he says, "The first and last questions I get are 'can I get those tracks?', the answer used to be 'no', but now you can get the same tracks I play with."
