Musician: John Ziegler - guitar / Jeff Babko - Keyboard / Lance Morrison - Bass / Danny Carey - Drums
Right from the start were Volto! a real curiosity. The band was made up of some of the best musicians of Los Angeles, but devoted himself at their performances in the tiny jazz club The Valley with full enthusiasm to playing Cover versions. In a time when the rock musician in the desperate hope to get a record deal and come to fame, the club owner paid for it in Hollywood to must perform their own material, which was quite unusual. Even more strangely, some of the pieces that Volto! coverte: In repertoire there were also namely Fusion numbers of Weather Report, Jeff Beck and Tony Williams. Numbers with complex arrangements and where the musicians splurged freedom to improvise on Devil come-out.
In order to solve the mystery finally: Behind the band name Volto! stick John "Volto" Ziegler, Lance Morrison and Danny Carey. Carey since 1990 drummer of the progressive metal band tool (Whose albums were multi-platinum and has three Grammys harvested), was already on recordings of Carole King and Adrian Belew to listen. He is known for drum solos of quiet intensity and breathtaking accuracy. The rhythm tandem of Volto! it forms with Lance Morrison, a hellishly good bass guitarist who comes from out of the Texas Corpus Christi and especially as session and touring bassist of Alanis Morissette, Simple Minds, Rod Stewart, Anastacia and Don Henley became known. At every concert the quiet, stoic Golf Hat support was given a chance his technical skills in one or two solos that he (somewhat sarcastically) usually devote all ladies in the club, "to flaunt". One of the biggest fans of Morrison solos is guitarist John "Volto" Ziegler (to it as Lance from Texas to Los Angeles verschlug) who has been playing with Danny Carey in the rock band Pigmy Love Circus. In Volto! He shines with blistering guitar runs, refined arpeggios, a delicate phrasing and the use of numerous effects.
After their performances in The Valley of the band featured their ausgelassenenen Sessions in party mood often in Probeloft of tool or in Danny's Hollywood home continued. About Texan Shiner Bock beer, vodka and tequila they decided one day, for a concert Volto! sometimes to write some original songs. And who knows, maybe you could with your own material sometimes upload an album.
To so easy to tackle the task as possible, the band booked any of the countless professional studios of Los Angeles, but gave the modest studio in tools Probeloft preference. There, the songs were fOr "incitare"Recorded live. The recordings made of the old Studio Hare and sound engineer" Evil "Joe Barresi (Tool, Queens Of The Stone Age, Bad Religion). And for sound amplification brought Volto! In Jeff Babko (including Frank Ocean, Jason Mraz, Sheryl Crow , Larry Carlton, Robben Ford) still a real keyboard wizard on board, the pieces like "Grillz", "BHP" and "grip It" even more intensity lent.
FOr the cover of "incitare" chose the band, an image of the psychedelic underground comic artist Rick Griffin, which was originally provided once for a cover of the 1960s rock band Steppenwolf, but has not been used for some unknown reason. Even Tool guitarist Adam Jones drove even artwork for the album at.
With the brilliant album "incitare" animated Volto! the fusion genre again, which was a forcible way since the 1980s, in an almost comatose state. With original compositions, the musicians bow to their original prototypes: before Weather Report, John McLaughlin's Mahavishnu Orchestra, Tony Williams Lifetime, Chick Corea Return To Forever and Jeff Beck.
