Hear why Offbeat Magazine says, "Johnny Vidacovich is not only one of the greatest drummers in New Orleans he''s one of the greatest drummers in the world."
This is Johnny Vidacovich''s third and most diverse CD, presenting his artistry as the central theme. Vidacovich plays a series of interspersed duo pieces, that stand out on their own or materialize as a result of a groove. Using an eclectic sound of accompanying instrumentation, with sousaphone, keyboards, bass, saxes, bass clarinet and guitar, Johnny boils up the beat and occasionally seasons it with some of his out-da-box poetry recitation.
Along with Michael Pellera and Jeffrey Meyer, Johnny has contributed to this playground of songs which free the players to romp to his beat. Pellera, Matt Perrine, Tony Dagradi and Shane Theriot, all add the right flavor to this great recording, allowing the listener to savor the main ingredient, Johnny Vidacovich.
