Although still best known for his association with Chick Corea, drummer Dave Weckl has led an underrated group of his own for quite a few years. His core band, a quartet with keyboardist Steve Weingart, electric bassist Tom Kennedy, and saxophonist Gary Meek, is a little reminiscent of the Yellowjackets in its use of catchy melodies and appealing grooves and its ability to perform post-bop jazz with the sensibility of rock. Weckl does not dominate the music and gives Meek and Weingart plenty of solo space. His band deserves to be heard, and Multiplicity is an excellent example of the quartet at its best.

I've always known Dave was an exceptional talent since when he was playing with Chick Corea, but his cats are equally as talented;.5 stars all around for everyone involved with this project.
Dave Weckl and his group put forth yet another incredible mix of funk, latin, jazzy fusionesque tunes, and the result is one of his best to date! Top notch players all around, and great songwriting make this a must have album. Not to mention one of the best production/ mixes you will hear today. Thanks Dave!
