5 stars After Miles Davis popularized jazz rock fusion in the jazz world with Bitches Brew (no, he didn't invent fusion), it was anything goes for the rock inspired jazz musican. And anything went.

Davis' band alumni John McLaughlin and Billy Cobham, along with keyboardist Jan Hammer, violinist Jerry Goodman and bassist Rick Laird formed the Mahavishnu Orchestra, creating a new form of tight, technical and powerful fusion, that rivaled the music of the best of the prog bands of 1971. It's hard to think that other great bands, like Return To Forever or Brand X, would exist without this group paving the way.

Right from the start, this album blew away the listener with fast and furious compositions and performances. Even the slower songs, which give you a few moments to catch your breath, are wonderfully inventive.

Almost three decades after it's release, I still play this album frequently.
