Don't act like your purpose was provocation. You moved the post because you thought it was off topic. Nothing more.

If you live in LA (or anywhere close) and you don't hit this up, you're a chump. Take the dude up on his offer. I know I would.

I'm bummed to miss Volto! yet again, but as a consolation I am hitting a decent show tonight in SF too:

http://www.sfjazz.org/events/season2/ma ... ie-hancock

The band is ridiculous - all band leaders themselves and monster musicians.

Herbie Hancock with Vinnie Colaiuta, Zakir Hussain, Lionel Loueke, & Marcus Miller @ an amazing new venue: SFJAZZ Center, Miner Auditorium

Enjoy your show.

I have no further info. Considering how long it too for the first Volto! album to come out while Danny had nothing else on, I don't hold out high hopes for this any time soon.

Not surprised - Volto! are very anti recording and seem to quite often have stuff taken down.

That's an odd stance to take for a fusion band. A lot of live bands that incorporate a lot of improvisation are generally pretty pro recording. Than again, it's not like Volto! have any other revenue streams so I can see how they might be protective of the only real one they have.

I agree, I think it would do them more good to have stuff online, but it's their music I guess...

From a post I saw on Reddit this morning:
I was at the Volto! show in LA last night (great fuckin band, by the way) and they said Danny Carey is going to be playing with the house band on Jimmy Kimmel Live the week of 9/26.
Set your DVRs, folks. I hope he dresses up in a suit and tie.

Sad news regarding John Z from Volto!
John "Johnny Z" Ziegler is a very well-respected and adored guitarist/musician in the Los Angeles music community and beyond. A dedicated player and sought after instructor, he is known for his band Volto!, as well as the groups Pygmy Love Circus and Zime - and of course as the ringleader of the Monday Night Jamz at the legendary Baked Potato Jazz Club for the past 12+ years.

On July 16th, 2017, John suffered a devastating stroke while alone in his home. In distress for an indeterminate amount of time, he was eventually able to reach his phone and signal for help. Paramedics arrived soon thereafter and transported him to Glendale Adventist Medical Center.

The stroke has affected John's speech, vision, and entire right side of his body. While tests are ongoing to uncover the extent of any further damage, the doctors and therapists are optimistic he can regain function. Those that know him will be happy to hear John's larger than life personality still shines bright, with his humor and signature charm very much intact. However, there is a lot of uncertainty ahead in his long road to recovery.

Due to this life-altering event, John is unable to perform and therefore support himself. He is in dire need of assistance to get him through this tough time that will undoubtedly require lengthy physical therapy to regain his playing ability.

The money raised here will go to the following:
- Medical & Therapy Expenses (including the potential purchase of a medical bed)
- Daily Care
- Transportation
- General Monthly Living Expenses

John’s immediate family lives in Texas, and are communicating with doctors to determine the best course of action. Meanwhile, the expenses are overwhelming, and will continue to mount. Any support you are able to provide will help give John the best shot at recovery and alleviate the increasing financial strain he and his family are under. Thank you for your help in getting Brother John Z back on stage where he belongs.

Man, that's terrible. It's also terrible that he has to beg on the internet or be ruined by medical expenses.

Fuck this shit.
