This all electric jazz-fusion show is in response to the lack of electricity here in Connecticut following a rare winter snow storm. Hundreds of thousands of Connecticut residence are still without power. Hopefully this show will provide some musical power to warm your inner being. Electric Rendezvous from Al Di Meola sets the pace for the frenetic musicality to come. Chick Corea's Return to Forever follows with more of Di Meola's scorching guitar and Chick's eclectic but swinging keyboard solos. My all-time favorite prog-rock composition, Close to the Edge from Yes shows the influence of rock music on Jazz in the early 70's. Mahavishnu Orchestra's epic composition with a full orchestral backing follows. Mwandishi Herbie Hancock ends part one of this podcast with some early fusion explorations that was heavily influenced by what Miles had been creating at that time.
