Default Re: Virgil Donati

IMO, once you get Virgil in a musical sceen where he is able to express alot of his own ideas is where you hear is individual style come out, and a very specific one...When I listen to his work with CABB, Planet X, VDB, and On the Virg, I hear a very original, musical, and innovative drummer that does not sound like anyone else in the world...When in this type of setting you could put any group of musicians with him and I would immediatley know it was Virgil...He has a very original way of playing fills, licks, and rhythms that only he does...hence the term "Donatisms"...

Finn, as you know I always do value your opinion even though we do disagree at times...Always liberating to hear what you have to say.
