Vinnie Colaiuta and Walt Fowler took part in the recording of Randy Waldman's 1998 album "Wigged Out".

This was the first record released by the brilliant American pianist Randy Waldman. The project had the participation of great names of the contemporary jazz, led by the exquisite trio formed by Waldman, Patitucci and Colaiuta, and the participation of Freddie Hubbard, Arturo Sandoval, Michael Brecker and other great instrumentalists. The idea of making "classic in jazz" was nothing new, but interesting to note was how Waldman rearranged these famous compositions by Tchaikovsky, Wagner, Beethoven, Rachmaninov for exemplo, making a beautiful dialogue between the harmonies of jazz and classical music, mixing with the varied contemporary rhythmic everything with very good taste and beauty.
