I read a press release right after "Full Circle" was shipped to iTunes that noted Danny had taken a few lessons recently from Joe Porcaro. I thought to myself, "if ya wanna refresh your jazz chops....Jeff's dad would be THE cat!"
Danny dedicated the solo in "Antonio's Love Jungle" to three other drummers:
1. Papa Jo Jones
2. Papa Joe Porcaro
You gotta check him out. Danny is taking no prisoners on this album. I think he's better now than he's ever been.

He has a really cool swinging groove. I wish he was still part of the band today but Tris is a decent replacement.
