“I don’t like it,” says producer Phil Nicolo with a wide grin. “I love it. Now, if we could just get David to hit the drums harder …”

The drummer in question is David Uosikkinen, the logistical brains and the organizational brawn behind In the Pocket: Essential Songs of Philadelphia, our Best Local Charity You Can Sing Along to. Uosikkinen is also the muscular rhythmic backbone to beloved Main Line rockers the Hooters. At the moment, he’s already five tunes into his mission of resurrecting an eclectic assortment of classics either recorded in Philly or written and performed by local talent. ITP’s one-off sessions employ a rotating lineup of the region’s most revered musicians, including fellow Hooters Eric Bazilian, Rob Hyman and John Lilley, Ben Arnold, Tommy Conwell, Richard Bush (The A’s, the Peace Creeps), Jeffrey Gaines, TJ Tindall (Gamble & Huff), and others. All work for free.
