Beck is a superb and soulful player and dabbles in the easier fusion material, but he has his own bag. Very moving it is too. But this kind of fusion here sure isn’t for everybody, but only very few payers can negotiate over the windy harmonic roads of this genre. And Hendrson and gang are masters at it.
They do cartwheels over very windy dangerous thrilling roads.
But sure. It aint for everyone.
Vai and Satriani otoh leave me utterly cold musically . Every time I try them I give up.
I had to reorder this book since Amazon informed me the original UK supplier could no longer supply it.
I once went to see John Scofield's trio play live in Brentwood jazz club. At the end of the set where he asked the audience for "requests" I suggested he do the version of "All The Things You Are" with the intro as on his album "Flat Out" - at which he winced and said, "sorry - its just too hard !"
When I first heard a teacher play this album on his cassette my jaw dropped.
A spellbinding truly spine tingling album for any jazz lover who loves to O.D on sheer harmony
