World Time by John Favicchia

Steady-cool, dynamic, and quite jazzy is how one would describe this new release by drummer extraordinare John Favicchia. Jazziz Magazine voted "World Time" as a Top 10 for 1997. Playing the drums since age 13, John has developed his own playing style into a unique, crisp, well-developed drummer. At age 16, John began studying with some of the top instructors in New York and decided to devote his full efforts into becoming a professional musician at age 18. He has toured the world from Germany, France, Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Luxemberg, and Hungry with the Latco Deczi's band "Jazz Celula", astonishing audiences with his pulsating style.

John knows too well how to be an important part in the making of his music but never trying to over-shadow or out play his sidemen. John features a congregation of great sidemen: Bob Malach on tenor sax, Bob Gallo and Dean Brown on guitar, Jerry Brooks on six string bass, Jeff Haynes doing percussion, and Brian Charette on piano. John's playing comes across as both self-assured and with an open-minded viewpoint. When asked about the songs on his release, John replies, "The songs on the CD have many different styles of Jazz: from Latin Jazz to Fusion, to Contemporary, and Traditional." We loved the diversity of forms expresses on this release and would recommend picking it up. Enjoy the beats!
