CD Reviews

Scorching Fusion
Thelonious | 06/06/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Vital Tech Tones play fusion the way it was intended to be played, with adventurousness, humor, and astonishing virtuosity. The band is tight and telepathic. Guitarist Scott Henderson is a musical alchemist, combining jazzy harmonic sophistication, screaming bluespower, and pure shred into an electric stew hot enough to melt rocks. The rhythm section of drummer Steve Smith and Victor Wooten alternately funks up the beat and subdivides it into complex rhythmic algebra. High points include "Sub Zero" and the extended jam "Chakmool Ti". Henderson's playing is a little rawer than it is on most of his Tribal Tech work, but it is no less stunning. Bassist Wooten is a formidable technician, but still leaves room for the funk. Drummer Smith's style on this CD is reminiscent of fusion titan Billy Cobham. All in all, an excellent sophmore effort from these excellent musicians. One only hopes that they take it on the road."
Impressive yet again

"After listening to the first CD and loving ever minute of it, I couldn't wait for them to put out their next volume. After listening to it I was very impressed with what I heard!Not knowing what to expect out of this CD, hoping it wouldn't be a rip off of the first one with the same sounding songs, I wasn't disappointed. Being different from the first CD, the song styles and sound were different which made this CD not being a replica of the first.Starting off with the intro of the band was nice, needed in the first album, but better off in this one than none. Then upon hearing Sub Zero was incredible, being in my opinion the most impressive song on the disk with the different timing and the solos. I did notice in this CD, the drummer didn't get the "spot light" as much as he did in the first CD, and Wooten did different effects and had different (and more) solos in this disk than he did in the first one, which is very good, because I love Wooten's playing, but don't get me wrong, Smith was incredible also showing his diversity in playing.Overall, if you are a musician, or just love instrumental music like this, like the first volume, this one is a must in your collection."
Fusion worth listening to

"Not afraid to take chances, these players push each other into new territory. The result is a very satisfying musical experience. This music scorches out of the gates and doesn't let up from start to finish. Some great "in your face" solo efforts. I'd love to hear an extended version of "catch me if u can". The give and take between Scott and Victor is awesome. Looking forward to the next recording from these great players."
