Following his triumphant worldwide reunion tour with Return to Forever in 2008 and separate trio tours in 2009 with Chick Corea and Stanley Clarke and pianist Hiromi with Clarke, drummer Lenny White was primed to put out his own recording, his first as a leader in ten years. With Anomaly, the pioneering jazz-rock drummer returns to his roots, blending powerhouse back beats and improvisational abandon in a bold, aggressive manner that characterized the early '70s fusion movement. Accompanied by a crew of unsung guitar killers in Nick Moroch (a former member of White's Astral Pirates), David Gilmore, Tom Guarna, David Bendeth and Jimmy Herring, keyboardists George Colligan, Bernard Wright, Donald Blackman (another Astral Pirate) and Vince Evans and bassist's Victor Bailey, Richie Goods, Charles Fambrough and his RTF band mate Stanley Clarke, White unleashes with Zeppelinesque fury on Anomaly, his tenth recording overall as a leader.
