well-known drummer "Stewart Copeland"(The Police),popular session bassist "Stanley Clarke"and song writter and vocal"Deborah Holland"...This is debuit album of special unit band.M.T. has been a big fan of Copeland and Clarke.
Actually,They planned to offer "Joe Walsh".but He has declined the invitation.Then,They offerd M.T. when he was unknown musician.(You can watch some live videos of"ANIMAL LOGIC"with M.T. on the link page.)
I like D.Holland's vocal and music who made all songs in this album. M.T. gave me a message"One of my favorite album!"when I showed this album to him.
