Though not exactly prog, this is a world-class fusion team featuring Brian Auger, Tony MacAlpine and Dennis Chambers doing clean and complex modern jazz-rock. Best CD is 'CAB 2' from 2000.

Great albums!!!!!I am a big fan of Dennis Chambers so I try to get everything he plays on,and when I discovered the CAB albums I was in heaven.My favorite is CAB for sentimental reasons,it was simply the first one I heard.

And you mentioned every one in the CAB line-up but bassist Bunny Brunel,whose bass work is awesome.

You caught me, and it's rare and unseemly of me to neglect such a good player. I got 'CAB' and didn't like. Also, someone told me they didn't care for CAB 3...what about you, Progtologist? I could use a second opinion on the third.

I have never heard it,and am not sure if CAB3 exists.When I first heard CAB I eagerly scooped up all the other CAB albums but even though there is a CAB4,could never find 3.I looked all over the net and can not find any reference to a CAB3 album,not even on McAlpine's website.I have CAB,CAB2 and CAB4.

I would also recommend another awesome,newer fusion album.

Greg Howe - Extraction

It features Howe on guitar,Dennis Chambers on drums,and bass wizard Victor Wooten.Great stuff,I highly recommend it.

LOVE Greg Howe...I've got 'Ascend' which is very prog (even a cover of 'La Villa Strangiato'!) I've been dying to get some of his fusion work.

BTW, Progtologist- I need to know; is that Anakin in your avatar or some other dark lord in training? I'm a huge SW fan but for some reason the photo doesn't necessarily look like Skywalker. Oh, and am I the only person I know who thoroughly enjoyed the last three films...?

It's Anakin.There is a scene in Revenge of the Sith as he's leaving the Jedi Temple after killing everyone inside(including the younglings),and fully turning to the dark side,that he turns towards the camera and his eyes are yellow.

That shot gives me the chills.My avatar isn't actually from the film,it is from a painting of that shot.

I have been a huge SW fan since seeing the movie in 1977(I was 11).And you aren't the only one that loved the prequels,because I do too.But while they are technically superior to the original trilogy,they don't have that magic that the OT did.I guess you had to have been a kid,sitting in a theater with your eyes as big as saucers,totally in awe of what you were seeing,something that was different than anything you had seen before.

Are you into the Star Wars EU(expanded universe)books?I am addicted to them.

That's what I thought-- I knew he had a mid-stage where he looked that way, now I remember the scene, thanks (BTW-- thought that lad playing the brave little padawan in the face of a once trusted master Jedi was quite good; that heart-breaking expression on his betrayed face).

Oh, I *was* a kid just like you. I was ten when New Hope came out. I'm glad there are some who do like the prequels but I don't think they have less heart or magic, it's just a less magical/hopeful part of the story.

Not essential stuff, only for die-hard fusion fans. It may sound boring to other people.
