"Vinces music is more than just a song; Its a texture, an aural painting that takes you wherever you want it to. Instrumental progressive rock along the lines of RUSH, YES in stucture, and similar with Steve Vai, in the guitar work.
I have been listening to Parallax, from his MP3.com site, and it is nothing short of incredible! The music as I write this, is taking my mind to new places. Im now listening to "Straw Castles", and I feel like Im being taken on a trip in a Heavy Metal (The Movie) type fantasy trip. All three of the tracks Ive listened to could be soundtracks to almost anything exciting. "Charlie Chan" is funky funky hard and jazzy with vocal cuts from Charlie Chan movies overdubbed and panned to make a fun, danceable, jammin tune. "Shift" is something that I can totally see myself listening to when Im skiing or skydiving! Its an adreneline packed, hard rockin, straight ahead progressive rock jam! "Nature" is another "New Age" song that could be compared with Kitaro. All of the songs Ive heard have been songs that Ill add to my "favorite ski CDs" list! I look forward to hearing more from Vince in the near future and am excited for the next creation from his mind. I highly recommend to give this gentleman a listen!"

textures, moods, and feels. His playing varies as the song dictates,
