Dennis Chambers biography
In May 9, 1959, Dennis Chambers entered this world and started his trip toward becoming a drummer amongst drummers. He started drumming at the age of 4 and played his first gigs in Baltimore nightclubs two years later. Despite his talent, or maybe because of it, he never received any formal musical training, but still developed into a drummer that is known for his technique and speed - especially amongst his colleagues.
At the age of 18, he joined Parliament/Funkadelic (also known as P-Funk), the funk collective around singer/songwriter/keyboardist George Clinton.
After 7 years, in 1985, he left P-funk to join Special EFX, but seemingly never recorded an album with them. In 1987, he joined the David Sanborn Band and the John Scofield band. With the latter he recorded a number of albums until 1989 and got more and more involved in his favorite music, jazz fusion.
After 1989 he played with many bands and band leaders, including amongst other Stanley Clark, Bill Evans and George Duke and made appearances on albums of Jeff Berlin, Gary Thomas, Billy Sheehan and many others.

Between 1991 and 2010 he recorded 11 albums under his own name, with varying line ups of great jazz fusion and rock musicians, with 2002's Outbreak as the possible highlight, featuring Tribal Tech's Gary Willis on fretless bass.

Dennis Chambers Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by Anon-E-Mouse

3 stars Further to my previous opinion on Chambers' previous release, there is very little I can add here without scratching my head really hard. The same typical American Fusion laced with Funk approach still dominates, where the Funk flavour - however dated it may be by now - is almost a welcome relief.

I thoroughly appreciate Chambers as one of the finest drummers around, but as a leader/composer/arranger he fails to excite. This work comes across as sterile but with clinical precision that no-one could fault - while few would likely to find enjoyable - let alone uplifting.

Quirky Funk reminiscent of Miles Davis "Tutu", or "Doo-Wop" period as if supported by The Brecker Brothers come to mind when I listen to this release, leaving me rather underwhelmed. (MD is gone while TBB are featured here.)

Chambers has been featured as equal part of numerous different collectives on the side of being a fantastic support artist to many big names. Those albums known to me appear far superior when compared with his releases under his own name. On his own as a leader he represents the weakest material known to me. Sadly, I can't offer this piece more than a rating of 3. Predictable, sterile and boring.

Dennis Chambers Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by Anon-E-Mouse

— First review of this album —
4 stars Chambers is a largely self-taught American Jazz drummer. His mightily powerful and heavy approach to the skins is almost one-of-a-kind. Drawing comparisons between him and Billy Cobham would be tempting, but rather erroneous as they are not really alike at all. To my ears the only similarity appears to be that both had excelled when in the employ of others, whereas their solo efforts appear to be somewhat less memorable - albeit not bad at all.

This album sports a stellar cast who play well with a professional approach expected of them. The music is very American Fusion with a slight funky edge at times. In it's genre it is rather typical with few highs, or lows. Pretty standard Fusion, something I find less engaging than the British approach of more Rock, Blues oriented Jazz-Rock. Still, American Fusion fans will find this work a very pleasing experience.

I have a couple of instructional videos by Chambers and to date, those jaw-dropping demonstrations remain far superior to this work on the scales of enjoyment.
