Album Notes
'Legs Eleven' is the 4th CD release from electric jazz drummer Chad Wackerman.(Chad has played with Frank Zappa, Allan Holdsworth, Andy Summers, Steve Vai, James Taylor and John Patitucci, Steven Wilson among many others).The project was composed and recorded in Chad's second homeland Australia, and is a reflection of the time he has spent in the country. Featuring Chad's urgent and exciting drumming, the CD has an openess which echoes the Australian landscape. 'It's very hard for me to separate the music I play with the way I feel and my surroundings - especially music that has improvisational elements in it', Chad says. The musicians involved in the project have been playing together as an ensemble for the past seven years. James Muller is one of Australia's finest young guitarists, Leon Gaer on bass is a studio heavyweight who originally hails from L.A. and Daryl Pratt, the electric vibraphonist, is a highly regarded jazz and classical percussionist. 'Legs Eleven', with its percussive edge, rewards the listener with an intense and exhilarating experience.

this is a great cd , unlike most drummer-led solo cds !!
chad leaves his contemporaries in the dust !!! when have weckl or danati dared step out of their boring chops for chops-sake nonsense !!! bravo chad !!! your drumming and compositions are very inspiring and fresh !! i look forward to the next !!!

Brian Jones

This CD has a great opening song. I really enjoy the vibes in the music.The drum breaks are great interludes.

Robert Jan De Bueger

lucio lorenzini

exiting,powerfull beautiful.all musician are really good.

Garey Williams

A must listen to for any serious fusion drummer!

Harald Reutin

The listener experiences great joyful playing of the musicians
The players here show that it is a real joy to play music.
The music is beautiful and gets you in real good mood. Get this cd, but be careful because you get addicted to it and you have to get more.


As usual, Chad has made a great album, with some great musicians. I'll recommend this to everybody I know.

Aran O Malley

Great Fusion Album
With more concern about texture this time Chad is certainly pushing his drumming into new areas

Joe Barbarotta

melodic and muscular
Intense, creative drum patterns are what Chad is all about. You'll get no "drum machine" patterns here. As usual Wackerman's composing shows a flair for subtle melody lines which are deftly handled by vibes and guitar. This is not a soloist's "wankfest". There are solos but they are all intelligent and make sense within the song structures. Get this album!


A laid-back production, based up on, mainly, the guitar- and the vibe-lines playiing, and answering eachother. Fairly restrained drum-arrangements for being a drummers cd, but it all turns out really groovy
