You're welcome and thanks!! I'm glad you enjoyed the Passport stuff That was a very fun band to play with, a with a great library of music... lots of fun. The Lifelike CD was really only released in Europe, which was, of course, a drag for me being here in the US. But it's great it's been re-issued on CD again. For any one interested, the YouTube clips Todd's referring to (which really make up the bulk of the Montreux concert that CD is partially based on) can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/user/davidcriggerdrums#p/c/0CDD5B44F500040E
As for other stuff that I'm particularly fond...
I'd say the CD I'm most satisfied with as a player would be the "Transvalue - Book III" CD that Bart was nice enough to review here when it was released a year or so ago. By no means the most commercial CD I've done, but one with lots of challenging progressive jazz music, unfettered by the stylistic/groove/genre restrictions placed on jazz by many folks... not me. I just really liked the way the whole thing turned out... http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001586Y5G?ie=UTF8&tag=drummercafe-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B001586Y5G
Then, of course, there's my participation in the music of Don Ellis... my favorite CD there would be again a CD of a concert from the Montreux Jazz Festival (this one three years earlier than Passport's appearance)...http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000060PCD?ie=UTF8&tag=drummercafe-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B000060PCD
And of course there's always a fondness for whatever you just finished working on....and this is a weird one as it actually a CD of a basically "lost tape" concert with Don Ellis playing with a quintet that traveled to India in 1978 to play two concerts (that quintet's only performances actually) for the 1st Annual "Jazz Yatra" Bombay International Jazz Festival. Anyway, a tape of this concert surfaced a couple of years ago and got enlisted to produce (meaning restore, edit and master) the project of turning this tape into a CD - which took me on and off the better part of year. And while no sonic masterpiece (the source tape was far from ideal), I'm proud of the fact that it presents Don in a small group setting that's quite different and far more aggressive than his small group outings of the 60's (much more representative of last decade or so of his life) and more importantly it presents five original compositions that up to now have been released on any commercially available recordings. So that would be "Don Ellis - Live in India". This is a limited pressing CD release, so CD's are only available at this time here: http://www.sleepynightrecords.com/media.php
But mp3's are available on iTunes and Amazon http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00475PDWO?ie=UTF8&tag=drummercafe-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00475PDWO
And just to make this "tooting my own horn" session complete - if you're wanting browse though other recordings I've done, I've got a pretty complete list on my website - http://www.davidcrigger.com/recordings.php
And above all else - thanks so much for asking!!!
