Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jim Newsom
Talk about a power trio! Emphasizing the ROCK half of jazz-rock fusion, Vital Tech Tones brings together three monster players of the genre, blends their creative juices and virtuosic abilities, and creates a truly vital sound that reinvigorates and re-establishes fusion as a viable part of the musical landscape. Most of the songs on this recording started with drummer Steve Smith giving his rhythmic ideas to bassist-extraordinaire Victor Wooten, who developed a groove over which guitarist Scott Henderson worked melodies and harmonies.

Such a simple, straight-forward, jam-oriented process is risky, but these three have the goods to pull it off, in the process creating a fresh electric music unique for its time. Although VTT has been a studio-only side project for these three, they interact here as though they've been on the road together for several years. It's loud, it's raw, and it's awesome -- just what aging baby boomers need to cure their smooth jazz blues, just what generation X-ers need to take them away from the tedious sameness of the alt-rock world.

    VTT2: Vital Tech Tones, Vol. 2

    The opening track is an indicator that the music here is not for the faint of heart. Steve's ''live'' drum sound and technical wizard-like performance ROCKS. He has become the master. Add to that the fast fingers of Victor and Scott's amazing guitar work that glues the band together in this exciting, impromptu jam.
