that is a sick 7/8 groove. song aint bad, but a tad to much synth for me, and I tend to like jazz with some synth (weather report)

Haha, it's pretty much only synth! Jay Oliver programmed most of the album with synthesizers. I even believe the bass is programmed!

Good stuff! Seems like we'll be playing Weckl Band's "Designer Stubble" on our drummer's final exam concert this spring, hopefully with Björn on the Saxomaphone :)

Exactly! Haha that's the first thing that comes to my mind whenever I hear 80's music though :D

I've just recently got into fusion. Been listening to Chick Korea a lot. And I know Dave from that band. He's really great! And that is a nice 7/8!

Chick Corea is probably one of the best musicians overall that's ever grazed the face of this earth. Just perfect in every musical aspect.

I LOVE the first album by Chick Corea Elektric band, especially "city gate"/"rumble" and "King Cockroach"! We're gonna play City gate/rumble in april with our fusion band. It's gonna be awesome!

Rumble reminds me of DT's Erotomania. I like both songs :p

Edit: Well actually it's the other way round. I heard Erotomania first though.
Been playing Spain recently. It's a funky song.

Dave Weckl was always a beast. The solo half way through is sweet! I always sucked at playing tradition grip with my left hand.

This guy is just a phenomenal drummer, like just the amount of feel involved here. Yeah the drum patterns are cool, but come on.

Yeah, there's really nothing to complain about. Some think he tends to over play but I definately don't think that's the case. At least not on these recordings. One of the most professional, groovy and musical drummers out there. He's not a legend for no reason!

Oh, and guys! Please check this out and leave a comment:

Listen to Island Magic! It is a recording of our fusion band playing this song live about a month ago! The drummer does a phenomenal job, mind he's only 17 years old!

"Lucky Seven" ("Lucky 7"?) is a better song. Slower and funkier. I think it's off of Weckl's "Synergy" album, which is awesome start to finish. Buzz Feiten plays some mean geetaring.

Nice drumming, but the main problem I have with '80s fusion is that the vast majority of it, save Tribal Tech, veers into Weather Channel music territory.
