  • If you're a fan of Vinnie...

    There was a post a while back singing the praises of Vinnie Colaiuta. If you are a fan of Vinnie from his Zappa days--odd note groupings and such--then definitely check out Jojo Mayer on The Screaming Headless Torsos 1995 release.

    I realize that this recording is several years old--hey, I'm kind of slow. I bought it a few months ago and have been listening to it practically non-stop ever since. Every track is amazing. Cool tunes, (mostly) cool lyrics, amazing drumming.

    Warning: It's not for the faint-hearted. The music varies from funk to jazz to reggae to heavy metal (complete with cookie monster vocals) often all in the same track! Sort of Living Colour meets Frank Zappa to discuss Charlie Parker, Bob Marley and Don Ellis...
