The drummer (and cymbalist) John Vidacovich, familiarly referred to as Johnny V, the winner of a life-time achievement award from OffBeat magazine, has made a huge have an effect on on the music of his native New Orleans during the last fifty-plus years. Whether as a founding member of Astral Project, the leader of his own jazz or funk groups, or a sideman in a large number of styles of popular music, Johnny has followed intensely in the distinguished tradition of Big Easy percussionists. And like other great performers, he has developed his own, inimitable style within the tradition. Even supposing Johnny has been interviewed by the press for decades, nothing like a full-length study of his life and work has ever been made. The present book fills that void with biography, photographs, statement on his recordings, improvisations on his teaching, and a consult with to his poetry and comedy, to not mention a detailed discography and bibliography.
