5 stars PURE MASTERPIECE OF IMPROVISIONAL JAZZ ROCK FUSION!This is the main idea concerning any appreciation about one trully fabulous album!There aren't enough words to express the worship that I have for this album!You think worship is a too big word?!Then ENDLESS ADMIRATION is better!This is the most fantastic trio formula in the history of jazz fusion,comparations with RETURN TO FOREVER or MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTER can be done,but the level of musical chemistry that is here,on this live album is stunning!HELLBORG- LANE and SIPE are beyond any musical boundary!They start from a tiny idea , a little musical idea without any core and then the alchemy that exists between this musicians plays an essential role...they feel each other at a level of perception which is almost extra sensorial!It's telepathic and magical!It's almost inhumane the frenzy and sensational capacity of SHAWN LANE to prove some out of this world technical skills,and on this live album he plenty offers magic momets!IT SMOKES LITERALLY!Everything flows in a perfect harmony on this album,and each member is an ace at his instrument!2 tracks of 30 minutes aproximatelly each and some rhythms and breaks,combined styles from free jazz to world music to hard rock tempos and the feeling thet what we hear it's performed live,that's almost scarry!We can hear solos of guitar.bass and drums and we are mesmerized by the capacities of three people to give a collective final result of amazing high quality music!HELLBORG is on this album stellar,as usual we can say... and delivers some slap technique solos that make KO any bass player and SIPE has some interventions ,both technically and musically amazing! Some of the solo's of LANE are almost unreal and unbelieveble to be explained,there are millions of notes and we ask ourselves if this man was from EARTH?Unfortunatelly he passed away from this world too sun,because he burned too fast,artistically speaking!He was before the time in music!I've heard hundreds of guitar players,but each time when I hear SHAWN LANE i am shocked,paralysed,striked!This guitar player was UNIQUE!!! 500 STARS to the most fabulous album of improvisional jazz fusion of all time!DIXIT!!!
