JAZZ ROCK/FUSION

A Progressive Rock Sub-genre


From Progarchives.com, the ultimate progressive rock music website

Jazz Rock/Fusion definition


  1. Jazz Fusion is jazz that is strongly influenced by other styles of music. Jazz fusion is an ambiguous term that provides the first level sub-set down from Jazz. Jazz rock is a sub-sub set from jazz via jazz fusion. The ambiguity comes from an American tendency through the 90's and until now, to freely interchange jazz rock and jazz fusion, when in fact the latter term covers most hybrids of jazz fused with other forms of music. The roots of jazz rock can be traced back to RnB influenced soul-jazz artists such as Les McCann, Grant Green and Jimmy Smith, and young British jazzers such as Graham Bond, Ginger Baker, John McLaughlin, Jack Bruce, Georgie Fame, who were forced to use electronic instruments because the local club's acoustic instruments were reserved for the older established jazz musicians. Probably the first jazz artists that released recordings that mixed modern rock (circa 60s) with jazz were Larry Coryell, Jeremy Steig, Charles Lloyd, The Soft Machine, and The (Jazz) Crusaders. Meanwhile rock artists such as Cream, Grateful Dead and The Jimi Hendrix Experience were getting a lot of publicity and fame with their lengthy improvisations based on blues, rock, psychedelia and some jazz. These rock artists had an impact on Miles Davis who generated a lot of media attention to this new jazz-rock genre with his Bitches Brew album. From there the genre grew and exploded into numerous different directions. One of these directions was brass rock as exemplified by bands like Dreams, Chicago, BS&T and If. These bands combined elements of jazz, rock and classical music with arrangements for brass and woodwinds.

  2. Many other styles of music have been combined with jazz to create fusion including traditional music from around the world, R'n'B, rock, electronic music and pop music and jazz from Africa, Latin America, India and other places. One of the earliest examples of the use of the term fusion comes from the Indo-jazz fusion of Joe Harriott and John Mayer. Some of the more popular early practitioners of fusion included Weather Report and Herbie Hancock's Sextant. A few years later Shakti appears on the scene and expands the boundaries of fusion further, foreshadowing the World Fusion movement of the 90's.

  3. In part Nu.jazz grew out of the British acid jazz scene of the late 80s and early 90s, whilst modern leaders of nu.fusion cite Miles Davis and Jon Hassell as the godfathers of the genre. As the genre began to develop it took on other influences such as world beat/jazz fusion, psychedelic trip-hop, post-rock and mixtures of ambience with modern jazz. The jazz with electronia experiments that Jon Hassell was conducting in the late 80's, with the likes of Eno, were to be a major influence especially on the dance side of nu.jazz, sometimes known as nu.fusion. Three main elements make nu.jazz different from the more traditional jazz (rock) fusion. First of all there is less of an emphasis on instrumental virtuosity in nu.jazz (especially nu.fusion). Second, more use of electronics (especially skilled turntablism) and studio trickery that emphasizes sound textures. Third, nu.jazz tends to use more modern rhythms such as drum'n'bass, hip-hop, post-rock, and various mixtures of world beat rhythms. Progressive nu.jazz artists such as Bugge Wesseltoft, Nils Petter Molvaer and the Esbjörn Svensson Trio (E.S.T.), combine complicated compositions with modern rhythms to create new unheard of soundscapes - while the former two are leaders of nu.fusion, and with more emphasis on jazz playing, EST have been the leaders in straighter nu.jazz. Nu.jazz is loosely connected to other newer jazz fusion genres, particularly the more progressive live, jazz jam bands such as Medeski Martin & Wood or Garaj Mahal. It may seem that the only difference between the two genres is the country the artist is from or what scene they came up through.li>

Only the most progressive of nu jazz, jazz-rock and fusion artists are listed on Progarchives, although accceptability or not here may vary from person to person. All artists have elements of progressive rock in their music (e.g. Jean Luc Ponty, Bill Bruford or David Sancious) or they represent the most forward-looking and progressive element in their genre (e.g. Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock or Weather Report). It should be noted that those many Canterbury jazz rock fusion bands, e.g. Soft Machine, Soft Works, Soft Heap, Soft Machine Legacy, Gilgamesh etc. are to be found under the CANTERBURY heading in Prog Archives.

All You Can Eat
Slivovitz Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by schizoidman

4 stars "All You Can Eat" is a great instrumental album bordering on classic. Slivovitz have their own unique sound based on Jazz/Classical/Rock/Funk/Blues elements. Influences that I can detect are Weather Report, Return to Forever, early Stanley Clarke, the jazzier side of Steely Dan and the like. Each piece of music is written with careful attention to structure and melody but allowing room for just enough improvisation. These guys can play, be it written on paper or flowing from their minds. The music is beautifully melodic ("Hangover"), humorously complex ("Barotrauma") with elements of tight, slippery funk ("Passanante") and their use of harmonica in this genre is truly ground breaking. To my ears their sound is "clean", the only distortion effects used sparingly are on the guitar.

If any of the group happen to be reading this I must certainly take the opportunity to say Thank You to all of them from the part of my essence that needs the beauty of music to help me get through this thing called life.

Slivovitz Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by dNZh

4 stars This album is impressive, an enjoyable jazz prog album, each track contains a set of violin solos, with the correct melodies becomes an exciting journey through songs such as Persian Nights, Passannante, Hangover. The trumpets are manifested throughout the whole album, Barotrauma and Persian Nights are a good example of this, also you can hear harmonica, which is not often used in jazz. My favorite songs are Mani in Faccia and Passannante. At different points of the album you can feel an air of 70s prog bands, maybe a little bit of King Crimson. It's an excellent album, from the beginning to the end, Slivovitz was a surprise for me, i had not heard any of his albums, but from now, I will have all their discography. Sorry for my English.

The Complete Go Sessions
Stomu Yamash'ta Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by VianaProghead

4 stars Review Nº 71

"The Complete Go Sessions" is a very special compilation, released in 2005, which includes the three albums from the Go sessions, both two studio albums "Go" and "Go Too", and the live album "Go Live From Paris". The Go sessions belong to a very ambitious musical project fusing diverse musical styles, that range from rock, jazz, classical and electronic, which was formed by Stomu Yamash'ta, in 1976, and which had a wonderful mixture of musicians from several genres of progressive music. So, we have Steve Winwood, Michael Shrieve, Klaus Schulze and Al Di Meola. This is only to mention the names of the most known of all the musicians who participated in this project.

Previously, I've already reviewed, individually, all these three albums on Progarchives, and so, because of that, I will not do it again. So, if you are interested to knowing more things about this fantastic musical project, and believe me it well worth, I invite you to read all my detailed reviews about them. So, I'm not going to analyze all the albums exhaustively and detailed, as I did before, but only to do a global synthesis of those my reviews.

"Go": "Go" is the first album of the Yamash'ta's project. It's a magnificent album where all the tracks flow together as a continuous piece of music, with the exception of the fourteenth track, "Winner/Loser", the only song written by Winwood, which probably justify why it sounds more as a Steve's album. It's a nice, calm and a beautiful piece of music, very experimental, with a spatial atmosphere, which makes of it a quite unique musical working. We can find on it diverse musical influences from rock, jazz, electronic and funk, good performances from all musicians, beautiful voice choirs and backing vocals, competent orchestrations and a very professional release. Finally, deserves special mention the presence of Winwood, due his voice on the tracks where he sings, which gives a very special feeling to the album. We are in presence of an original and very interesting album, which is, in my humble opinion, very underrated on this site. Unfortunately, the progressive reviewers here, have given very little attention to it. I sincerely think that this album is an excellent addition and deserves to be part of any progressive rock musical collection.

"Go Live From Paris": "Go Live From Paris" is the second album of the Yamash'ta's project and was recorded live on 12th June 1976 at the Palais Des Sports in Paris, France. As with their studio version "Go", on this live version all the tracks flow together as a continuous piece of music. However, "Go Live From Paris" is a more balanced album, and I don't know if it's due to the new alignment of the songs. On the live version, they're totally changed and the final result is a much better album. So, "Go Live From Paris" is a fantastic and a beautiful live album, one of the greatest live albums of the progressive rock music, and it's also probably, one of their most unknown masterpieces. Here we have a great performance from all this band, which brought together some extraordinary musicians on the same stage. Really, we are in presence of a lost gem that urgently needs to be discovered and appreciated as it really deserves.

"Go Too": "Go Too" is the third and last album of the Yamash'ta's project. After all, I must say that this isn't the continuation of "Go". All the main musicians of the project are here, but it lacks to it Winwood and his unmistakable voice. The absence of his presence is very noted, and whatever the reason, this album is much weaker than the both two previous albums. However, that doesn't mean that we are in presence of a weak album. "Go Too" is a good album, very eclectic and influenced by many musical genres like rock, jazz, funk, electronic, pop, disco and new age. "Go Too" remains a fine addition to the previous two albums and despite be not as interesting, progressively, as the first studio album, it still remains a release that offers a lot of enjoyment with great performances, and for the romantics amongst you, two excellent ballads. In relation to "Go", the style of the music became profoundly modified but I still think that it remains a good work, overall. This is an interesting work that closed this surprising musical project.

Conclusion: I know this project since it was released and I must say that I always became very well impressed with it. Unfortunately, we are in presence of an underrated project, on this site, and where the progressive reviewers gave very little attention. I really don't know if it's by lack of knowledge of it. If I can interest you about this project, I'll be perfectly happy. The main objective was reached. Perhaps the right thing to do is buying this compilation because you will get the entire complete project. However, if you aren't interested in spend so much money to have the entire project, I recommend you to start buying their live album "Go Live From Paris" their hidden masterpiece. It's especially indicated for those who prefer live recordings over the studio ones. Anyway, as a project, it must be known as a whole.

Hat And Field
Ain Soph Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

4 stars This is AIN SOPH's second album released some six years after their debut "A Story Of Mysterious Forest". I do prefer the 1980 debut as I gave it 4.5 stars but this one is well worth the 4 stars in my opinion. "Hat And Field" is an obvious reference to HATFIELD AND THE NORTH including the very cool album cover. There's also a song called "A Canterbury Tale(For Pye Hastings & Richard Sinclair)", yet to my ears this is Jazz/ Rock Fusion all the way with them crossing the line into Symphonic and Canterbury the odd time. I wish the liner notes were in English as there's a lot of info but I appreciate the many pictures of the band, mostly in the studio.

"The Swan Lake" has a mellow intro that turns beautiful before a minute followed by a guitar led section, very enjoyable. Distorted keys replace the guitar and the bass is prominent here as well. The guitar is back leading and man that bass is good. A calm after 4 1/2 minutes but it's brief as that guitar led soundscape returns. "Little Pieces Part 1" and the second part later on were written by the keyboardist while pretty much everything else was written by the guitarist named Yozok. This short piece is piano and floating synths throughout.

"Suite: Hat And Field" is the longest piece at just over 10 minutes and it's divided into 5 sections. It hits the ground running with so much going on but then it stops as a guitar led melody takes over. Catchy stuff with some nice bass too. I like how themes are repeated throughout. We get an almost spacey vibe 4 1/2 minutes in that's beautiful and I like the relaxed keyboard work after 7 minutes. The tempo picks up before 8 1/2 minutes big time.

"Mizzle" is a Jazz/ Fusion piece where they show off their chops. Impressive! "Canterbury Tale(For Pye Hastings & Richard Sinclair)" is a guitar led song that is a fitting tribute, very enjoyable. "Magic Carpet" is synth led as the music swells and collapses until it kicks into a Jazz/ Fusion track that is quite lively. A calm before 3 minutes and I love when the guitar comes in with the background synths. "Little Pieces Part 2' like the first one is piano led with spacey synths, very ballad-like. "Pipe Dream" is a bright keyboard led track with prominent bass and busy drum work. The guitar starts to lead before 4 1/2 minutes. Nice.

A really enjoyable album that will scratch the itch for most of you Jazz Rock/ Fusion fans out there.

Amoc
Coma Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by Atavachron
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

3 stars Unusually good progressive jazzrock experiment gone terribly right, Denmark ensemble Coma's Amoc kicks some ass and made this grizzled veteran smile more than once, showing a band quite well versed in their understanding of rock and how it can interlope with almost any other form of music, even the unwilling ones. A creepy whistle intros 'Savværket', Jakob Mygind's sax leads a shaky mix as the band finds a pace, Viggo Steincke Bertelsen's fiery guitar pulling out a groovy vamp and some serious riffage that heats up nicely merging into 'Pigerne fra Himmelbjerget', funky 'Pulp', and cerebral 'Heavy Winter'.

'En saftig brosten' was (even in 1980) retro space-age fusion; 'Orientexpressen' tastily bobs & weaves and kicks out the rhythm; 'Love and Madness' is romantic pap; But the title cut is a prog/fusion honker reminding of John McLaughlin's dirtier days. Not entirely realized or completely finished, Amoc had more potential than it yielded but, even without the bells and whistles and pyrotechnics of an Al DiMeola, is still a rousing set of quality Hard JR/F.

Solution Live - Reunion Concert in club Panama, Amsterdam
Solution Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by jvandemerwe

— First review of this album —
4 stars This DVD is a reunion concert held in the Panama Club in Amsterdam. All the classics of this great Dutch rockgroup are played here. Solution was already retired when they decided to do a one-time reunion concert in 2006. This DVD shows that these "old" men didn't loose any quality. It is a great performance of one of the best music ever composed by Dutch pop artists.

The nice thing about this DVD that it shows the concert (almost?) uncut, including the flaws in the presenation. But that only adds more to how much fun the members of Solution had in doing this evening, that was attended by die- hard fans and family. But there were no flaws in the songs played. That is just a big celebration to watch.

It is only a pitty that the video is in 4:3 format, but we can be very happy that it is so much more than nothing at all. A must see/have for Solution fans, but also for everyone else that loves to see professionals doing their greatest classics.

Go Too
Stomu Yamash'ta Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by VianaProghead

3 stars Review Nº 70

As I wrote before, when I reviewed the two previous albums of The Go Project, the first time I heard to talk about this musical project was in a broadcasting station in my country, following the release of their first album. I became very impressed with it, and soon as I could I bought the three albums. Unfortunately, I only could purchase "Go" some years ago, "Go Live From Paris" to a couple of years and "GoToo" was only purchased very recently.

The Go Project was born in very strange and troubled times to the progressive rock music. As many of we know, the years in late of the 70's were years of deep changes in the progressive rock world. These were the years of the revolution made by the punk movement. The punk explosion was reminding to everyone of the visceral thrill of the first principles of rock. So, projects such as Stomu Yamashta's "Go" were somehow unthinkably and weren't a commonplace in those times. Jazz meets the avant-garde at the disco? This was a very strange thing, indeed.

Anyway, Yamashta, scion of the Japan National Symphonic Orchestra, had built up a sufficient and very solid reputation as percussionist, composer and bandleader in 1976 and he was able to call upon the services of a hand full of great musicians such as Steve Winwood, Al Di Meola, Michael Shrieve and Klaus Schulze, forming The Go Project, one of the unlikelier super groups of the era.

The line up on the second studio album of this musical project is also very extensive, as happened with their first studio album, and was formed by some the musicians who had already participated on their debut studio album of the musical project, which are Stomu Yamash'ta (synthesizers, piano, tympani and percussion), Michael Shrieve (drums), Klaus Schulze (synthesizers), Al Di Meola (lead guitar) and Brother James (percussion). However, there were many other musicians who also collaborated in this second studio album. So we have Doni Harvey (vocals and guitar), Jess Roden (lead vocals), Paul Jackson (bass), Linda Lewis (lead vocals), J. Peter Robinson (keyboards) and The Martin Ford Orchestra. All the music was written by Yamash'ta and all the lyrics by Michael Quartermain. Paul Buckmaster once more made all the orchestral arrangements.

"Go Too" is the third and the last album of the Stomu Yamash'ta's Go project and was released in 1977. I must say that it isn't properly the continuation of their first album "Go". All the main musicians of their project are here, but unfortunately it lacks to it Winwood and his unmistakable voice. I don't know the reason why he doesn't participated on this second studio album. It was by his own free will or because he wasn't invited by Yamash'ta, who wanted to make something different on this album. Anyway, the lack of his presence is very noted, and whatever the reason, this album is much weaker than the previous one. However, it doesn't mean that we are in presence of a bad album. On the contrary, "Go Too" is really a good album, despite being clearly a very eclectic album, but is probably too much influenced by many and diverse musical styles such as rock, jazz, funk, electronic, pop, disco and new age.

Often considered the poor relation to the first "Go" album, the album is a totally different proposal to its illustrious predecessor. Possibly because of the time in which it was released and due the involvement of Linda Lewis, the album has received many put downs and the worst of all is that it was considered an album of electronic disco music. This is so far from the truth and is certainly a slanderous thing. It's true that gone is the fusion, gone are the solos, gone are the signature licks of the musicians and that "Go Too" saw also the Winwood's departure. But we can say that he saw the arrival of the criminally overlooked ex Alan Bown vocalist Jess Roden and the ironically unsung Linda Lewis, utilising all five octaves of her extraordinary range to stratospheric effect on madness. In truth, the album is a bizarre but generally pleasing combination of contrasting elements, ranging from the plangent balladry of "Mysteries Of Love" to the oblique Zappa harmonies and logic defying Di Meola guitar solo which fuel "Seen You Before".

Conclusion: As I said previously, when I reviewed "Go" and "Go Live From Paris", The Go Project is, in my humble opinion and unfortunately, an underrated project with very few reviews and rates on this site. Obviously, "Go Too" isn't an essential album in any progressive rock musical collection, but I sincerely think that it deserves really more than 2 stars. It represents the end of one of the strongest musical cooperation of the 70's. "Go Too" is a fine addition to the previous two albums by the ensemble and although not as interesting, progressively speaking, as the first studio album, it's still a release that offers a lot of enjoyment with great performances and, for the romantics amongst you, two excellent ballads. Still, if you are a progressive fan and a beginner with this musical project, you must start with their live album "Go Live From Paris", which is their hidden masterpiece, and avoid "Go Too", as a first listen.

Colosseum Live
Colosseum Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by ALotOfBottle

4 stars Colosseum created a strange brew of their own. Mixing jazz, blues, soul with progressive rock ensibilities in a very European way. After four studio releases that enjoyed a relative success, the group released a live-cut double album named simply Colosseum Live. It was recorded Manchester University and the Big Apple in Brighton during the band's Daughter Of Time tour.

Colosseum Live portrays a experienced group with incredible amounts of energy and vigour as well as on-stage know-how. Various jokes and modifications of lyrics are just a part of the act. This must have been a great show to be at! Dave Greenslade is at his best here with his unmistakeable jazz organ virtuosity. Dave "Clem" Clempson's screaming guitar rings out beautifully on his heavy blues rock solos, but also fits in well when a rhythm guitar role is needed. Chris Farlowe, only recently having joined the band, is the engine of the group with screaming jazzy vocals and many anecdotes in between songs. Dick Hechstall-Smith, the prominent figure of the English jazz scene adds incredible saxophone parts, sometimes playing two instruments at once, a bit like David Jackson of Van Der Graaf Generator. Jon Hiseman's drumming goes from light bebop parts to almost "proto-metal" gallops. Mark Clarke plays some great grooves as well as providing backing vocals, which are in great harmony with those of Farlowe and Clempson. All in all, Colosseum was made up of outstanding professional musicians.

Although Colosseum Live is a double album, it consists of just six tracks (plus one bonus track). These are always above seven minutes and are characterised by lengthy jams. Despite being largely driven by improvisation, the music has a feeling of being organised. "Tanglewood '63" is a great example of that. Starting with a charming saxophone intro, it turns into a jazzy jam, than introducing vocals and going through many different forms. "Stormy Monday", which is a classic blues number goes far beyond being a blues cliche with tempo changes. "Lost Angeles" is the track you are waiting for the whole album. Sort of based on their "Valentyne Suite", this song has many different sections, all very interesting and rewarding.

To conclude, Colosseum Live is a legendary live album. It could well be described as "Colosseum in a nutshell" with all of the band's most significant characteristics. Obviously, it belongs into every Colosseum fan's collection, but will make a great addition to every prog nut's assortment. A very accessible record and will be a great place to start for new Colosseum listeners. Four stars!

Santana IV
Santana Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by Progfan97402

4 stars I have not bothered with any recent Santana releases, in fact the most recent Santana album I own is Moonflower. So I was surprised to see much of the original Woodstock band is back for this, Santana IV. All except David Brown, who unfortunately passed away in 2000, and Jose Chepito Areas, for some reason or another couldn't be present. Neil Schon, though not an original member of the original band, makes a reappearance (it seems that Schon's guitar playing has a more distorted feel, and Santana's has a more clean tone, which applies for Santana III way back in 1971 as well). For the most part I found it surprisingly enjoyable. I love the album cover, it's very reminiscent of their 1969 debut, except now it's a tiger, rather than a lion. The LP version is embossed, with the Santana logo and the sharp fangs and eyes being embossed. To me it sounds like, well, more or less, an updated version of the original Santana band, basically with modern production values. "Yambu" has a rather distinctly African feel to it, while the next two songs "Shake It" and "Anywhere You Want to Go" is just plain great songs, even Gregg Rolie still delivering that trademark organ (although I'm sure he's using a more modern organ these days). Big surprise: "Fillmore East", obviously in honor of the venue in New York (I'm surprised it wasn't called "Fillmore West" given Santana's San Francisco origins). Santana goes a completely unexpected direction in the the world of Krautrock-influenced space rock. It's as if Carlos Santana (and perhaps Neal Schon) was channeling Manuel Gottsching. Listening to this, you'd wonder if you were listening to Ash Ra Tempel, Agitation Free or Amon Duul II. It's completely not what I expect out of Santana, but I love it. I have no idea how aware Carlos Santana is of the German scene, so for all I know, it's pure coincidence. Lovers of space rock need to hear this! Minor chords seem a bit rare in Santana, given its frequent upbeat manner, but here minor chords dominate, and it gives that spacy, eerie, ominous feel I don't usually associate with Santana. The next two songs, "Love Makes the World Go Round" and "Freedom Around the World" feature Ronald Isley (Isley Brothers, naturally), and while soul music isn't my music of choice, these two songs are surprisingly good, especially because it still has that wonderful Latin rock energy you expect out of Santana. "Caminando" is generally a great song, but I could do without those digitally replicated horn (sounds like it was from a workstation synth) which seems a bit tacky. "Blues Magic", is unsurprisingly a bluesy song, and a rather good one. I really felt the album runs out of steam towards the end though, and the last four songs are nothing to write home about. "Come As You Are" has a bit of a Calypso feel going on, and to be honest it's not to my liking. "Forgiveness" just seems like a rather self-indulgent number, although when the vocals kick in, it reminds me of Peter Gabriel. It's like the band sorta ran out of inspiration towards the end, but that's a common problem with double album sets. I have to say, when this album is great, it's wonderful. It might not reach the highs of the first three albums, but it's certainly a hellova lot better than having to put up with "Smooth" being overplayed to death on the radio (the big reason I never bought Supernatural, that, and the over-reliance on alternative rock and contemporary R&B musicians). So I'm glad it's not some star-studded cast found here like on Supernatural (only Ronald Isley was the major guest on Santana IV). A rather good album and worth having, even with a couple of weak numbers. Plus it has "Fillmore East" for all you space rock junkies.

Go Live From Paris
Stomu Yamash'ta Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by VianaProghead

5 stars Review Nº 69

The first time I heard something about this musical project was in 1976 in a radio station in my country. When I listened to it, for the first time, I must confess that I was very impressed with it. It seemed to me that it was a very different musical proposal. So, soon I tried to buy their first album 'Go', but unfortunately, I couldn't find it. It was only some years ago that I returned to search for it. After some difficulty, I had the luck of buying an expensive Japanese edition.

The Go Project was a very ambitious and innovative musical project, lead by an extraordinary Japanese percussionist, keyboardist and composer Stomu Yamash'ta, which finally brought for him, the international recognition that he so deserved. He had already released, until that date, six solo studio albums. The Go Project consists in three albums, two studio albums 'Go' and 'Go Too' released in 1976 and 1977 respectively and this live album 'Go Live From Paris' which was also released in 1976.

Stomu Yamash'ta was born in Kyoto, Japan and he studied music at Kyoto University in Japan, at Juilliard School of Music in New York City and at Berkeley College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, and has also lectured in music. He was the director, producer and composer of the Red Buddha Theatre Company, and in 1972 he brought the Company from Japan to Europe. He worked briefly in France, writing and performing on theatrical multi-media projects, before moving to England. It was from England where he met so many artists and musicians, that he had the idea of creating this so ambitious musical project.

Beyond Stomu Yamash'ta, there are some other musicians in this project that deserve to be mentioned. Steve Winwood is a famous English singer, songwriter and a multi-instrumentalist that was member of The Spencer Davis Group, Traffic and Blind Faith, apart from his brilliant solo musical career. Michael Shrieve is an American drummer and percussionist that is best known as the Santana's first drummer. Klaus Schulze is a musical composer and a pioneer musician of the German electronic music who briefly was a member of Tangerine Dream and Ash Ra Tempel, and he has also a long and very solid solo musical career. Al Di Meola is an American guitarist with a long musical career and is one of the best and the most influential guitarists in the jazz fusion category, who collaborates frequently with other great musicians like Jean-Luc Ponty, John McLaughlin and Paco de Lucia.

'Go Live From Paris' was the second album to be released of Stomu Yamash'ta's project and was recorded live on 12th June 1976 at the Palais Des Sports in Paris, France. As with its studio version 'Go', this live version has also fourteen tracks and all the tracks flow together as a continuous piece of music. So, there's not much in the way of additional material, aside from the greatly extended 'Man Of Leo' which has lashings of superb guitar from Di Meola, and some slightly elongated bridges between the different themes. The whole double album is only a little over 20 minutes longer than the original album. The performances are remarkable though, as you might expect from these players, with one or two tracks perhaps even bettering their studio counterparts, and it does make for an interesting alternative to the studio album for fanatics like me. The recording quality is excellent, unlike some vintage live albums, but I'm sure that some of you won't see the need to have both, the live and the studio albums. However, 'Go Live From Paris' is, in my humble opinion, a more balanced album. I don't know sincerely if the main reason is because the alignment of the songs was totally changed, but the final result is that this new live version turned it in a better album.

Conclusion: 'Go Live From Paris' is a fantastic and beautiful live album, which isn't inferior to the most of the live albums released in the 70's. Especially, the second part of the album is truly remarkable and unforgettable, mainly because the great show of guitar of Di Meola on 'Crossing The Line' and also because 'Man Of Leo', which is, to my taste, the highest point on the album. The music doesn't lose a bit of its atmosphere in this setting, but it does naturally sound a bit earthier, especially the guitar sound. It's really fascinating listen to these extraordinary but at the same time so different musicians, working so well together. But nevertheless and unfortunately, we are in presence of an underrated project on Progarchives. 'Go Live From Paris' is one of the best live albums of the progressive music and is perhaps one of the less known. It's a pity that an album with so incredible musical moments and so finest playing being almost forgotten, as well this fantastic super group. Anyway, the true is that we are in presence of a lost gem that urgently needs to be discovered and appreciated as it really deserves. This new Yamash'ta's live seminal concept opus is more than sufficient to make me feel that this is really very well spent money for who want to buy it.

Prog is my Ferrari. Jem Godfrey (Frost*)
