Filmed at the majestic New Jersey Performing Arts Center, this set covers a Saturday at the world-famous Modern Drummer 2006 drumming event in greater depth and detail than ever before. The set features over six hours of material including performances and interviews by Ronald Bruner Jr. of The Stanley Clarke Band, Jason McGerr of Death Cab For Cutie, the historic R&B/Gospel Summit featuring R&B session-ace Teddy Campbell, Gerald Heyward (Beyonc), Aaron Spears (Usher) and gospel great Marvin McQuitty, drummer/percussionist Glenn Kotche, master drummer Thomas Lang with master percussionist Luis Conte, and drumming legend Stewart Copeland with his band, Gizmo.
Accompanied by guitar and drums, Victor presents a set that stretches from the serious thunder-funk of "U Aint Got No Groove" to classic performances of "Amazing Grace" and "Norwegian Wood." Oteil Burbridge joins him for the finale. Victor also discusses his thoughts about music as a language, the tradition of the electric bass, inspiration and practicing, and provides a brilliant 30-minute private lesson on technique. Special DVD features include an additional 60-minute interview in which Victor discusses the techniques he is working on now, influences (including Stanley Clarke, Bootsy Collins, Larry Graham, Jaco, Curtis Mayfield and Prince), a multi-language feature to view the DVD in Spanish, German and Japanese, a beautiful unaccompanied solo by Victor.
This cutting-edge book and audio package brings the drumming of David Garibaldi and the music of Tower of Power to your practice room and provides an in-depth look at the concepts that David uses to create his futuristic, yet old-school grooves.
