“Brandon Fields is a saxophone player, and in the ‘80s and ‘90s he did a lot of records that featured some of the best LA studio and fusion guys. This whole record is Gregg Bissonette on drums.
“I was a student of Gregg’s. He was my mentor when I was about 18, 19 years old, but I had this record before I ever took lessons from him, so I knew what he was about. This record is very much like an ‘80s-sounding fusion thing, but what was cool about it was that Gregg came at it in a rock way. This wasn’t too long before he started playing with David Lee Roth.
“There’s a lot of styles, genres and sub-genres represented here: Latin, funk, odd time, you name it. But it’s got Gregg’s feel all over it. You can tell that this guy can rock as well as do everything else. There’s a drum solo to a song called The Brain Dance, and in drummer’s circles it’s pretty famous. It was transcribed in Modern Drummer. Gregg was doing a lot of what you’d probably call his ‘Gregg-isms,’ so that track is a crash course in his style. To expand your rock playing in some really cool ways, I'd definitely recommend this record to drummers.”
