“If you’re a serious Vinnie Colaiuta, you already own this record. If not, you should pick it up and find out what you’ve been missing. It’s funny how some of the younger players don’t know a guy like Vinnie. I teach at the Musician’s Institute, and when I bring up his name, somebody will say, ‘Oh yeah, he played with Sting.’ And of course he did, but there’s so much more to him.
“This is probably one of the most popular records for true Vinnie Colaiuta fans. It’s brilliant in that it’s so loose yet so together sounding. The first track is called City Lights, and if you just heard that one song, you'd get a good sense of what's going on – so much is packed into it. The interplay between everybody is amazing.
“Vinnie, just being himself, knows when not to ‘be Vinnie.’ He’s a fantastic session player, somebody who can go in and play with so many people, everybody from Faith Hill to Sting to Megadeth. This album is an example of him ‘being Vinnie.’ He gets to really go off, and he's stunning.”
