Like you guys say itīs impossible to just have 10favourite records mentioned, but hereīs a few of mine.

-Chick Corea Acoustic Band "Live from Tokyo" (Vinnie on drums, truly amazing)
-Planet X "Moonbabies" (the most sick drumstuff from Virgil I have ever heard, and dogboots ofcourse )
-John Scofield "What We Do" (Bill Stewart on drums, what can I say?)
-Chick Corea "Three Quartets" (The one and only Steve Gadd)
-Miles Davis "Fillies de Killimanjaro" (One of my favourite Tony Williams recordings)
-Sting "Ten Summoners Tales" (Vinnie plays SO good on this recording)
-Vital Information "Where We come from" (Steve Smith plays so musical on his drums)
-Chick Corea Acoustic Band "Alive" (Weckl on drums, great soloing and playing)
-OTV "SYI" (Virgil is THE drummer)
-Dave Weckl Band "Transition" (I love Weckls Albums, but his three last CDs is best I think)

As I said, there are MANY more, but these are a couple of them.

Cheers!

I think 'Just Add Water' is a very improvisational show with great musicianship whereas the 'OTV'-Serious Insects album is more of a structured, band sounding cd. I personally LOVE the OTV album, and i find that there's a lot of interesting interaction going between the trio on with the 'Just Add Water' album, but it's clearly not one of my favorite albums.

The fact that it was a totally unrehearsed and an Improv recording with no 2nd takes and overdubs makes it mindblowing and the creativity and musicianship are fantastic of course and it was one of my favorites overall but no top ten for me. Surely a great album no doubt about that.
