Bozzio Plays Chamber Music

"Terry Bozzio isn't just a great drummer but a superb percussionist. If you want to hear a rock drummer don't buy this cd. I have listened to Terry through many of the groups he played with and have seen him with Frank Zappa, Jeff Beck and at a drum clinic. This cd reminds me of many of the Frank Zappa arrangements. If you want to hear Terry play drums & percussion similar to the Zappa years I think you will enjoy this cd. I think this cd will appeal to those who are more adventurous in their listening. Terry does a great job and this cd is different than his previous solo projects."
It's not for everyone...

"I actually have the older version of this you can get off Terry's website, but its the same thing. This is an interesting CD, but I have to agree with the other reviewer here who said it is long, drug out, and certainly not rock. The fact that it's not rock doesn't bother me in the least. This album is a bit boring and, as with Terry's other solo drum music albums, it tends to be far to frantic to listen to comfortably for any length of time. I can't imagine someone popping this in to entertain or relax with.
I would suggest, that if you want a Bozzio album you can listen to and hear some amazing drumwork, get Situation Dangerous or Black Light Syndrome by Bozzio, Levine, and Stevens. That way you also get to listen to Steve Steven's amazing guitar and Tony Levine's bass work."

"Renowned rock drummer meets established orchestra; the combination works on an eccentric level, but on a casual level, not so much. I'm sure that drum aficionados will appreciate Bozzio's unique approach to his drum work here, but the songs are so long and drawn out (and far from rock), that they tend to lose their appeal."
