Seven-time Grammy winner Paul Wertico, a name long-synonymous with innovation and Herculean energy/talent in the world of drums, has stepped out of the box once again to present an album that defies genre boundaries. In addition to the usual suspects of his trio including guitarist John Moulder and bassist Brian Peters, Wertico has combined forces with Israeli guitarist Dani Rabin and saxophonist Danny Marcovitch to form the Mid East/Mid West Alliance. The product of this marriage of talent recently came together at the Chicago Sessions Recording Studio where, after two short evenings of transcendental artistry, Impressions of a City (Chicago Sessions, 2009) was born.
