The Blue Bird 20" Mellow Ride was created in collaboration with the inexhaustible Andre Dede Ceccarelli, the iconic French Jazz drummer whose over half century career has won him numerous collaborations with international top acts in Jazz and beyond, and who is especially known for his subtlety, diversity, artistry, wide ranging ability and musical charm that effortlessly transcends genres.
This previously released model is being re-launched under a new designation, and was conceived by Dede as a sophisticated ride cymbal for application in smaller instrumentations and intimate settings.
The Blue Bird 20 Mellow Ride is a medium light cymbal with a distinctly sweet character and a fine, buttery feel. It features a silvery ping over a warm, mellow wash. Akin to Dede, it easily transcends Jazz and finds broad musical application wherever refined articulation and cultured style are required.
As a tribute to Dede's inspiration, the label Blue Bird and a graphical rendition of the label supplied by Dede have been placed on the cymbal.
