Good Advice for Yesterday
SLAP is a jazz/jam trio that's been playing together for nearly 20 years. John Henry Scully is the drummer. He's equally at home laying down the backbeat to a reggae influenced vamp as he is playing a solo in 5/4 time. Scully's ability to shift gears and tempos at will make him a rare gem in the field of percussion. Mike Zubal is the bassist. A musician all his life, Mike lays down the foundation for all of the musical journeys that Slap undertakes. His style is most unique and his playing is highly recognizable for it's angularity and beauty. He is the anchor. Tom Zubal is the guitarist. Raised on a steady diet of Led Zeppelin and Hendrix, Tom later got jazz training and has since merged the two great forms of American music in his playing. His solid rhythm is balanced by an adventurous improvisational hunger.
