Wally Schnalle: Louder Than Your TV

Drummer Wally Schnalle applies his facile jazz-rock chops to slamming funk-fusion fare like “Everybody’s Got One,” “Betty Jo B” and the title track. The dynamic, tempo-shifting “Traffic Update” is a nod to Weather Report while the quirky “Gimme a Break (Everybody Does)” simultaneously showcases Schnalle’s second-line groove and his swing factor. This tight quintet includes powerhouse saxophonist and accomplished guitarist Jeff Massanari. Fans of Mike Clark and Dave Weckl will dig this.
