Amsterdam Percussion Group
So I saw this group on Youtube and, being a fan of Terry Bozzio and all things percussion, I had to have it. I searched and discovered no mention of it on Bozzio's website, or any of the DVD sources I normally use. I couldn't find any reviews either. I finally had to order it through the group's website. It took two months for them to finally ship it from Holland and with glee I popped it in the DVD player only to discover that something in the formatting prevents my system from reading it. "Cannot Play" flashes on the display. Fortunately it does play on my computer so it's not a total loss. The music is wonderful with compositions by Bozzio, Piazzolla, Zappa, and members of the group. Some of it is reminescent of Pierre Moerlen's Gong. This one will get many plays!
