Dave Weckl Band - The Dave Weckl Band Live: And Very Plugged In (2003) Retail CD
It always angers me the amount of criticism Dave Weckl has had to endure throughout his long and distinguished career in music. Admittedly, this has come from those who are simply not qualified enough to offer any opinion! It is more a case of "sour grapes" - because, those who criticize are simply jealous of the man's obvious talent. Shame on them!
I have always loved his playing. As a drummer myself, I feel more able to appreciate his sheer genius and command of the kit - even more than non-drummers perhaps. In some ways he reminds me of Buddy Rich. They both shared a passion for drumming andmore… dedicated their lives to stretching the instrument to its full. Of course, Buddy is gone now, but I feel his spirit lives on today in many drummers - Weckl especially.
I had never heard "The Dave Weckl Band" till I bought this double cd live set. And what an introduction! He seems to be playing more relaxed than before. His overall feel and groove are also a little more laid back. Of course, he can still play all the "Weckl drum licks" catalogue with ease, but on this recording he plays totally differently than you might expect. More accessible a style I would say. He also has fun interacting with his band. You can just feel that he has arrived on a new plateau of musical expression.
All in all, a great recording. It really does show Dave Weckl in a new light. A fantastic achievement. Great stuff Dave!
