I understand what you are saying. But what does this have to do with it being on Vinnies Website for us drummers to listen to? Should I ask Admin to delete the post here? Let me know.Just to make sure everyone is aware - this music has not to been created to sell to music fans - like say, Vinnie's first self titled album was. These recordings are marketed straight at music supervisors. Tons of even big budget video productions - TV shows, etc. are made without specifically hiring a composer. The Sopranos is a great example of this - there was no composer hired to write music for that series. Instead there was a music supervisor and /or music editor hired to find all of the music used in the series from pre-existing recordings... not just the songs, but the underscore itself was all pieced together from music already created.
Needless to say - with 500 channels and seemingly 8 million shows being produced yearly - this quicker and cheaper approach is incredibly popular with producers. The aesthetic good or bad of this is a whole other debate - but creating original "library" music for music editors to pursue has become a major potential source of income fro composers.
Every piece of music broadcast must have its mandatory composer's copyright fees paid and some sort of mechanical license paid to use the recording - even at the minimums these can add up to making it worthwhile to front the expense of the recording and production (as Extreme Music is doing here). Place a few tracks in the right places and the whole project is payed off.
So these CD's are demonstration disks resulting from Vinnie and the folks at Extreme partnering to produce some tracks they think might interest music supervisors and editors - actual catalogs of music available to be used. The CD's allow editors to "try before you buy" - which makes sense as all the money is generated on the back end. Why charge a buck or two for folks to try it - when the real payday comes from them actually using it?
Anyway a huge - behind the scenes - music market.
My post doesn't really have anything to with "it being on Vinnie's Website for us drummers to listen to" - because I can't find that it is on his website - viwnniecoliauta.com - at all. If you could link where you saw it on his site, that would be great.I understand what you are saying. But what does this have to do with it being on Vinnies Website for us drummers to listen to?

No problem - and I think it's great you posted it. Besides it being some interesting and unusual music - I think it is a great example of how a career in music has become a "leave no stones unturned" sort of operation... even for a first call, five star player like Vinnie. And how no matter how busy you are - creating a means to receive "mailbox money" is never a dumb idea.Okay got it, I misunderstood. I just thought I posted something that I shouldn’t have posted cause they are not intended for consumers per se. But I understand, thanks. If you go on Vinnies website go under Discography and the albums are there. Click on the album name and it will either open a track listing or take you to another site, in this case, Extreme Music where each track is listed. I haven’t listened just was asking if anyone heard the tracks.
