Synopsis

Album Description
Newly recorded especially for this album, "Sick Jazz Surgery" . The "surgery" begins when that triplet-based vamp changes to straight ahead rock. Orchestral bells solo and chime uncannily. "Dangerous" (Bozzio Levin Stevens? "Situation Dangerous"). Immediately we launch into a rollicking Zeppelin-ish vamp. Respite comes with a half-time groove, during which Terry and Tony nail it down while Stevens spins triplets over top. "Dreaming in Titanium" (Jordan Rudess? "Feeding The Wheel"). There is a bright sheen hovering over this lithe bit of funk, with its percolating bells and synth. Before long it yields to lush piano, the soundtrack to a forties movie. "Last Call" (Explorers Club?s "Age Of Impact" ) An all-star cast on this album includes Billy Sheehan, John Petrucci, Steve Howe, James Murphy, Matt Guillory, and Derek Sherinian; vocals courtesy of Dream Theatre?s James LaBrie. An unreleased gem, recorded during the sessions for Bozzio Levin Stevens? "Blacklight Syndrome": "Walking Dream". "A Glimpse into a Deeply Disturbed Mind" (Drum Nation Volume 1) calls up memories of Terry with Missing Persons and Zappa, yet derives equally from Terry?s solo work. In "Edge of a Circle" (Bozzio and Sheehan?s "Nine Short Films") we witness Terry on all manner of drums, percussion, and synth, to boot, while Sheehan has his hands full with bass, baritone and lead guitar. "Melt": Re-mix wizard Mark Gage assembles and convolutes sonic bits ("Sonic Residue From Vapourspace"), recreating a compelling mix of Bozzio Levin and Stevens. It?s effective in preserving the essential melodic components of the original, yet allows Gage to "paint" in the manner of Salvador Dali, creating lumpy forms, soft transitions, and segues where none hitherto existed.
