Legendary drum virtuoso Virgil Donati’s latest album “In This Life” will be will be featured on the upcoming performances.
Having recently won Modern Drummer Magazines best-recorded performance, it has set the bar for explorations in rhythm. The album was produced, written and arranged by Donati.
Virgil’s drumming has arguably been at the leading edge for at least a decade, and as this record displays, his compositional and orchestration skills are also coming to the fore. Never one to seek approval or security, he has maintained an introspective, independent mind, transcending traditional boundaries, always alert of the possibilities beyond the norm. The 10 tracks on this album are an affirmation of these principles, and along the way, features some of the brightest young musicians bursting onto the scene from all corners of the globe.
