Re: Art Verdi
Upon learning about who Art had performed with, I looked up who they were. Jack Wilkins was the guitarist for Buddy Rich. And a lot of the other guys Art played with played with like Coltrane and big jazz guys.
I thought it was almost a discredit that people knew Art only through the speed thing when the guy was playing with these types of people.
Mangini is the same. He may be the fastest, but the guy plays with Stevie Vai, for godsake!
