Vital Information - 1988 "Fiafiaga" (Celebration)

Steve Smith played drums with Rock legends, "Journey" and this was one of his first albums with his new Jazz group. The music on this showcases the fine talent of Smith's drum playing. The tracks "Maltese Connection" and "50/50" are the highlights of the recording. The CD has been out of print for a while so finding it will be a challenge. Recommended!!

I have been looking for this record since i left college. I'm glade that amazon could find it its out of print and they got it, this is one of the best Vital records ever.
