CD Reviews

The record I've been waiting for all my life!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Gary Willis has one of the tightest band known to man. Dennis Chambers does some AMAZING time keeping on this album. Steve Tavaglione played with Miles and has a great funk feel. Kirk Covington also appears on 2 tracks. There's just one keyboard cut (under 2 min), a slower ballad, and the rest of the disc cooks. The title track is like nothing I have heard before. When I die, I'm taking this disc with me. I don't think I own a better disc! Check out some Tribal Tech albums also. Reality Check is a wonderful album as well."
Not for the faint of heart!

"Great stuff! refreshing to here a bassist who manages to draw on inspiration from other masters, both past (Jaco) and present (Marcus), without actually sounding like them. But for me, a bassist, incidentally, the real star of the show is Chambers: he's simply devastatingly creative and technically exquisite with time manipulation. Willis must agree, because the drums are mixed right in your face. The only reason for not giving 5 stars is the heavy leaniing towards technicality rather than musicality - you can't help concentrating on this music. Buy it!"
Tasteful bass and music

"on hearing both of mr willis' solo albums one must be struck at how much he actually contributes to the sound, structure and ideas in Tribal tech. This is good, tasteful and grooving music.
In my opinion Willis is one of the great bass players post jaco pastorius - don't mess around ...just buy it"
