Jing Chi Live!
"Jing Chi Live!" is a collaboration between renowned guitarist Robben Ford, drummer Vinnie Colaiuta (Sting, Frank Zappa, Steely Dan) and bassist Jimmy Haslip (Yellow Jackets, Tommy Bolin, Steely Dan) who each have contributed to millions of record sales. "Jing Chi Live!" brings to mind the essence of classic Power Trios such as Cream crossed with the adventurous sophistication of fusion pioneers such as The Tony Williams Lifetime. As fans would expect, this live CD recorded in December 2002 at Yoshi's in Oakland, California focuses on each player's phenomenal musical abilities. However, this record is more than a vehicle for fantastic soloing as the compositions stand on their own as well arranged pieces of music that exhibit a synergy rarely heard in today's music. This record, recorded over several nights in concert, takes the performances from these stellar musicians and combines for one of the greatest displays of instrumental virtuosity in Tone Center's history. The fans that really want to see these guys stretch out creatively will not be disappointed.
