ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Groove oriented, trippy rock built from the drums up. That's what you get with V.H.F., a new concept for a band that stems from the brain of drummer Todd "Vinny" Vinciguerra. Taken from the blueprint set by Miles Davis' groundbreaking record Kind Of Blue, VHF starts with drummer Todd Vinny Vinciguerra setting the initial tone of the song, The song arrangement is made on drums, then passed along to legendary bassist Tony Franklin (THE FIRM, BLUE MURDER, Kenny Wayne Shepherd) for chord progression and underlying groove. Once a groove is established, the rhythm tracks are set in place for guitar virtuoso Joel Hoekstra's (NIGHT RANGER, TRANS SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, ROCK OF AGES NYC) independent interpretation

Bassist Tony Franklin had this to say:

"I’m digging the completed VHF CD (Todd Vinny Vinciguerra, Joel Hoekstra, Tony Franklin The Fretless Monster)... Wow, actually! And it’s crazy how this thing came together. Vinny approached me with the idea. He wanted to lay down some song-oriented drum grooves and then have me play bass over them... it was wide open, whatever I wanted. So I did it, and had a blast. I put some time into it to come up with something creative, heavy, a little edgy and different, while still maintaining a “song-type” format. Vinny’s parts were great to play over - groove wise and idea wise. I was definitely inspired. Next we handed the tracks over to Joel Hoekstra who was totally on board and in tune with the concept. He took it to a whole other level.
When I listen to the tunes, they sound like we sat in the same room together, created the riffs, grooves and changes as a band,which couldn’t be further away from the truth! Haha. I’ve always maintained that nothing beats playing and recording in the same room together... but sometimes there are exceptions to the rule!!"

Joel Hoekstra had this to say: Todd and I used to room together when I lived in Hollywood many moons ago. Great guy. He sent me this track of him playing a groove and Tony Franklin (The Firm, Blue Murder) playing an awesome riff oriented song structure to it. He told me to record whatever I felt like and the first track was so interesting, that I agreed to do an EP. I think for an instrumental cd, it's extremely interesting. It's a backwards writing concept...drums first, bass 2nd and guitar/melody last, but because of that it's extremely unique. It comes from more of a song/vibe/creativity place than most recordings in this genre. There's definitely a heavy, psychedelic aspect to it and that's something that appeals to me because it's completely different than any of the aforementioned projects.
