...bigband situation???
I play with a semi-professional Bigband where I live and it just struck how cool it would be to see Virgil playing in a bigband :)
Imagine dogboots with bigband orchestrations :D

I really think that Virgil can do whatever he wants.
If he wanted to, he'd do the hay out of it.

I just thought it would be cool.
Just like Weckl, Colaiuta and Gadd did the Buddy Rich Memorial concert, maybe Donati, Minneman, Lang could something like that :)
Maybe in the future...

Id love to hear Virgil in a hip/hop band. Just imagine the phat beats he would lay down!!

I think I remember seeing Virg play in a big band in Melbourne many years ago. Can't remember the performance though but i don't think he played over the top, just very tasteful and kept the groove.

I remember Virgil asking the audience the style of drumming he can venture off before playing his last drum solo during the clinic months ago and one dude shouted, SWING! Oh boy this will be something since Virgil is more on the progressive side of music but he pulled it off as good as he is.
