MOMENTUM is a labor of love from Drummer/ Composer JON BELCHER. For years Jon was the soundtrack drummer on TV's "FAT ALBERT & THE COSBY KIDS", before making his mark as a drumset clinician and the author of two highly acclaimed method books.

Seven of the ten tunes on this CD were composed by the drummer, so it shouldn't surprise that the music incorporates a myriad of exotic rhythmic elements. In spite of the intricate rhythmic ideas the music is groove oriented and refreshingly melodic.

Many of the tunes utilize the combination of Vibes & Flute, or Vibes & Soprano Sax to state melodies that stay with you, and the ensemble is packed with great soloists. While it's not really "Latin" music, it makes good use of Afro Cuban rhythms in seamless transition with straight ahead jazz grooves and the kind of funk beats you might expect from an alumni of Fat Albert's "Junkyard Gang".

About the new CD "Momentum", legendary session drummer HAL BLAINE says: "Excellent Drumming. Should be a part of every drummers collection. Jon leads this group with the momentum that every drummer should have".
