Chad Wackerman: Dreams, Nightmares and Improvisations/Featuring Allan Holdsworth
Chad Wackerman: Dreams, Nightmares and Improvisations/Featuring Allan Holdsworth  

Chad Wackerman (Drums); Allan Holdsworth (Guitar);Jimmy Johnson (Bass);Jim Cox (Keyboards)

Four masters of musical improvisation collaborate on the latest release from esteemed drummer Chad Wackerman. Known for his work with Frank Zappa, Allan Holdsworth and James Taylor, Wackerman blurs the line between composed and improvised pieces on Dreams, Nightmares and Improvisations. The featured musicians: guitar legend Allan Holdsworth, bassist Jimmy Johnson and keyboard player Jim Cox, have all developed a unique musical telepathy with Wackerman over decades, which is allowed to shine on this inventive, adventurous CD.

Ranging from atmospheric to edgy, the music on Dreams, Nightmares and Improvisations showcases four creative musicians at the height of their musical powers. Wackerman has structured the CD so that the interplay between the performers is ever-present. Many of the improvised pieces sound like fully formed compositions, while the written pieces provide ample opportunities for spontaneous flow.

Wackerman’s history with these musicians goes back a long way. He has been playing with Jim Cox since their first gig together in 1979, backing trombonist Bill Watrous. Thanks to Peter Erskine, Wackerman met and started working with Jimmy Johnson in the early 1980’s, a continuing collaboration that both cherish. Wackerman began touring and recording with Allan Holdsworth in 1982, beginning with Holdworth’s well known Road Games release. Listen to the sparks fly as these musical bonds deepen on this incredible new CD.

“Chad Wackerman has a beautiful ear for harmonies and melodies that lets your inner musician soar, and with 'Dreams, Nightmares and Improvisations' it comes together and expresses his potential as an artist. All the musicians who play on this record are the inspired elite and on this CD they create a magnificent and ethereal listening experience.” ~Steve Vai
