drummer with the Adrian Cohen Trio & the Joey Thomas Big Band)
1. Allan Holdsworth "IOU", "Metal Fatigue", and "Road Games"
- I 'd have to condense these into a box set! Holdsworth speaks for himself. Absolute greatest ever on guitar. Ouch!
2. Tony Williams Lifetime "Believe It"
- The alltime best fusion record ever made. My brother and I wore it out.
3. Herbie Hancock "Thrust"
- The real deal Headhunters with Mike Clark on drums. Contains the best song ever recorded " Actual Proof", which is single-handedly the baddest shit ever played.
4. Buddy Rich "Richcraft"
- Buddy at his best in the late 50's with Harry Edison, Phil Woods, Benny Golson. As a drummer, you have to deal with Buddy who was the absolute best ever. No one has ever come close. No one ever will.
5. James Brown - Any and all by the Godfather will do.
- You're going to need some soul on that island, brother.
