From Luisburg PA come this criminally underrated overlooked fusion band.As far as I know they have released three posthumous albums.

Sound is definetely jazz/rock fusion.They have been compared to Mahavishnu,Zappa,Dixie Dregs,Gentle Giant and many more.Their violin player David Rose used to be with french band Transit Express(another great fusion band).
 
They have two studio albums,of wich the second is the best.Mostly instrumental fiery fusion.The first one is quite good too with perhaps more variety;folk,symph,psych and even some Canterbury.The other one is a live album much like the second;Notes on a picnic.
 
They have a myspace page and I think their own site.

Listening now; just on the second track.  "Notes on a Picnic" is a really sweet track. :)
