ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Convergence is an exciting project from Dave Weckl and Jay Oliver. Jay was a major creative force behind Dave Weck's first three solo releases in the '90s and two Dave Weckl Band records ("Rhythm of the Soul" and "Synergy").

Convergence reunites these longtime musical counterparts with 10 new songs. Highlights of the album include a remake of Stevie Wonder's "Higher Ground," a nod to 1990's "Master Plan" which featured two drummers. This time, it's Dave, the incredible Chris Coleman, a first-call horn section, three gospel singers, and legendary players including Dean Brown (guitar) and Jimmy Johnson (bass).

Convergence also features a collaboration with Bill Whelan (Riverdance) that was partially recorded in Ireland. There's also a saucy New Orleans-inspired tune, two jazz tunes, two "fusion" tunes, and two solo pieces (drums and keys).

Additionally, play along versions of each song are available at http://www.daveweckl.com. These include mixes without each instrument and charts. The drum version includes a multi-camera video of Dave's actual session for each song!
