This little pig is going to laugh all the way home.... and the ones that fall off...get bacon. Cannibals!!!

About the Album

From Frank Macchia & Brock Avery's new album "Rhythm Kaleidoscope", Frank took Brock's improvised drum solo and composed "stream-of-consciousness" music featuring over 40 woodwinds as well as a bunch of brass, strings and keyboards to give the impression of piggies of all sizes bouncing at various tempos on a very large trampoline! Some of the piglets fall off, but they always get back on!
