Chad Wackerman established himself as a versatile and creative drummer in the 1980s with the rhythmic complexities of being a member Frank Zappa’s band. He has also worked with Barbra Streisand, Men At Work and Andy Summers. Forty Reasons, his debut solo album features a stellar line up of players, guitarist Allan Holdsworth (U.K., Soft Machine), bassist Jimmy Johnson (Rod Stewart, Billy Idol) and keyboardist Jim Cox (B.B. King, Henry Mancini). Follow-up The View features the same line-up and was acclaimed by The L.A. Times as “90s West Coast cutting edge jazz”. “Wackerman knows how to get the best out of his band, whether employing a pointed 7/4 groove, propelling a free improv or simply laying down his angular, monster like time feel”- Jazz Times.
