This album blew me away.
The sheer proffesional instrumentalism, timing, rhythm and overall sound combines to make an unstoppable musical journey through many styles of jazz.
The headman, Dave Wecker, is an inspirational drummer. I don't know how he slipped through my jazz collection but i am making sure it never happens again. On top of his fantastic pace and rhythm that creates the solid basis of each track, I found that every other featured musician did their part to the maximum. From the mindblowing 70's Funk inspired Bass Riffs, to the sweet melodies of the sax, it is the perfect mixture of these instruments that make this album a must-buy for any upbeat jazz enthusiast, because it has to be said, every track makes you want to move!
My only qualm would be that its all over too quickly, but having said that, an hour of music ranging from jazz-funk to latin-jazz will not dissapoint the most avid of jazz fans. Give it a go!

weckl's playing is staggering the whole way through, and, supported by some fantastic musicians throughout (particularly good sax) he has managed to create an absolutely superb album for anyone who's a fan of jazz-funk / latin-jazz - it just leaves you dying for more! i bought this album kind of by chance, and what a stroke of luck it was! 5 stars no question, just absolute brilliance!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dave delivers... 2 Nov. 2005
By John M. Mcnally - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is an excellent album by a fusion band. For the other reviewers who are looking for something "different", I think they are looking in the wrong place. The band's charter is sophisticated time modulations, complex harmony, and plenty of groove... and they deliver. Strong song writing is found throughout the CD, and the melodies quite memorable. It might take more than a quick listen to each of the 20-second song samples to really appreciate the music. After listening to the entire CD several time, the material really grew on me. The band is air-tight and Dave's playing is better than ever. His drumming in inventive and tasteful.

I saw the band play this material live in NYC in October, and it was even more powerful in a live setting. There aren't many fusion bands out there now, but this one is carrying the torch. Well done!

2.0 out of 5 stars Same Old Same Old 8 April 2006
By Donald Christensen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If someone asked me what album I'd recommend to get an average feel for what Dave's records are like, I'd recommend this one, because it averages just about everything he does. His latest albums seem to follow a formula of certain grooves that feature his spactacular playing (no doubt about it), but I bought this formula in the last few studio albums already. Trust me, if you have two or three of Weckl's previous works - you already have this album as well!

3.0 out of 5 stars More of the same... 22 July 2005
By Hustafaben - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
First off, I have to say that I really enjoy this album for what it is. It would earn 5 stars in my review except for the reasons I outline in this review.

When I was first introduced to Dave Weckl just 2 years ago, I was agog by the tight production and catchy melodies the band has consitently produced. I have nearly all of the alubms he has released with his Dave Weckl Band. They adopted a Michael Brecker-like fusion sound and ran with it. Every album since then has done little to tamper with or stray from this algorithmic approach.

I find now, however, that consistency has given way to reptition. Most of the stuff on this album is waaaaay too similar to other great songs on past albums. Perhaps not in note-for-note repitition but in style without a really catchy melody. If you are just looking into Weckl's modern solo career, then this album isn't a bad start. I wouldn't suggest you go out and buy Transition, Synergy, Master Plan, and Mutiplicity in rapid succession or all at once, but any of these albums would give you the same high quality (even if it is the same style) modern pop-fusion that Weckl is the top drummer of.

It really comes down to the question of what we know each individual musician on this cd IS capable of, and what we find the group putting out. I think that the Synergy hinted at by the past Weckl title is misplaced. There is very little in this album that pushes the boundaries of what has already been accomplished in the fusion world. Weckl and friends have the tools and the imagination to really push the envelope and trying to find new ground, but most often it is left to guys like Ben Allsion, The Headless Torsos, and older cats like Chick Corea to take the risks of moving forward in a genre like fusion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievably Great Stuff 1 July 2010
By Esquire Wood Do It - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Variations on the dotted-eighth-note (and off beat 16ths), as expected. But Dave plays some very "edgy" stuff on this CD that I haven't heard before. There's a wide contrast between the subtelty of torn silk on the snare and rain drops on the ride versus the in-your-face WALL-o-the trip-o-lets (and 32nds). During the edgy parts, Dave suprisingly shows what a virtuso heavy-metal drummer would sound like. Indeed, I've been a Weckl fan since 1986 when I was attending the Navy School of Music (as a drummer for the Army Band, trying to play everything Dave played :)). So, I can hear the "Weckl-sound" from a mile away. But there are times, during this CD, when he really surprises me with some great stuff.

3.0 out of 5 stars End of the road (?) 26 Dec. 2005
By Jazzcat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I own every album the band put out in the past and obviously a lot of jazz and fusion records with Dave at the drums. I say this last release from Dave isn't bad, but it's not that memorable in my opinion. It's a little bit slick. Everything falls in place, everything is perfect ... there's not fire. You listen to it and it's gone like fresh water, it doesn't leave you almost nothing. The best albums from the band are still Hard Wired, Master plan and maybe Rhythm from the soul I'd say (and the live one). Especially Hard wired. It's not even Dave's fault in my opinion. I think that in this kind of fusion music after few albums you come to the end of the road. Simply you don't have nothing more to say and so you can only stay there going nearer jazz in one album or near "rock" in the other. Sometimes it is convincing, sometimes a little less. This time to me it's a little less, this time the music lacks a little bit of personality. It's too slick, too educated, to synthetic music the one contained in this cd. There's not too much fire. Obviously the guys plays great bla bla bla bla. But when you have thousands of cds with great players involved you need to find great music in it. Knowing that these guys are exceptional musicians (and they are for real expecially Dave) it's not enought for me. If I'd be in Dave's shoes probably I'd take some time to think about the future of this band, about choosing with great attention what material to play next with it. Or the toy could be broken.
