Rhythm of the Soul

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
Toss into the musical blender the spirits of Stevie Wonder, Crusaders, Van Halen, Sting, Dr. John, and Chick Corea; turn on the fire, low for easy simmering blues-rock at times, high for a fiery intensity that busts the borders between R&B and fusion. The result: the Dave Weckl Band's hard-to-categorize adventure, Rhythm of the Soul. Here, he celebrates his liberation from Corea's Elektric fold with a vengeance.

The result: the Dave Weckl Band's hard-to-categorize adventure, Rhythm of the Soul. Here, he celebrates his liberation from Corea's Elektric fold with a vengeance.

Weckl's skin and high-hat energy jumps out at every turn, most notably on the jams but also on the more subtly rhythmic "Mud Sauce" and the dreamy ballad "Song for Claire."
