My favorite Jan Hammer album is Oh Yeah! (why hasn't it been released on cd??) but the alternative take of the Oh Yeah tune,  Red & Orange found on Abercrombie's Timeless has the edge - also Hammer provides one of those great Hammond organ performances on Timeless, when perhaps he isn't known as a Hammond-player. For another aspect of the same line-up as found on Timeless, but with the addition of Mike Brecker in stinging form, is the later ECM Records album Night

 

Seriously thinking of trying to add Abercrombie into PA, as a major jazz rock guitarist - although a lot of his albums released in the last years, have been more mainstream jazz.

Happy to see this great musician included and not before time.
