Some oddities (for me):
1) Tony Williams wearing regular clothes...and playing non-Gretsch drums (don't want to give it away )
2) Simon Phillips wearing a Tony Williams jumps suit
Stand-outs for me:
1) Vinnie(of course)
2) Tony Williams performing thematic magic
3) Steve Gadd & Ralph MacDonald doing their groove thing with classic Gaddisms
4) Dennis Chambers building on a 1/2-time shuffle groove after his explosive intro
5) Peter Erskine doing an amazingly musical thing on a hip gig set
