Drum & Synth II



Hip Address is David Earle Johnson's third album as a leader and the second with Jan Hammer in the keyboards chair. I would rate this one maybe half a notch behind Time is Free, his first. As usual Johnson is playing an amazing array of percussion toys (and sounding like a one man batucada section), Jan Hammer is hammering (literally) out the melodies and Jeremy Steig is guesting on flute on tracks A5, B2, and B3. This record also features several vocal tracks which as usual are a showcase for Johnson's wit and Zappaesque delivery.
