One of today's top players, New York-based John Favicchia has performed and/or recorded with such greats as Steve Khan, Tony Levin, Chieli Minucci, Lonnie Plaxico, John Benitez, Harvie S, Larry Coryell, Dean Brown, Rachel Z, Chris Geith, Laco Deczi, Mike Pope, John Benitez, Steve Adelson and Bob Malach. His band, Dharma All Stars, blends various styles into a powerful blast of fusion that spans the extremes of the dynamic range. Favicchia has been busy touring around the world as well as releasing his own albums. His debut CD, World Time, earned rave reviews and was a Top 10 Critics Pick of the Year in Jazziz magazine, while his latest release, Dharma, offers an intriguing mix of melody, eclecticism, and tight ensemble playing with a cast of all-star guests including Steve Khan, Dean Brown, Dave Mann, and Chieli Minucci. Favicchia enjoys both the mental and physical sides of playing drums. "Definitely," says John, "It's all about the soul and the mind, but its very visceral as well. I'm caressing the sounds out of my cymbals in one bar, but when the music takes off and I start to wail, I take no prisoners."
