4 stars MYSTICAL CAREER ,, in fact ......... Jazz fusion was adopted by many talented musicians in the middle 70' as a feedback to prog rock . it was perfectly clear to any prog lover that Ponty , Mahavishnu, di meola , ZAPPA , Santana ( in few releases , and so many others , wakeman , Vangelis took the choice of introducing a new age of music , It was in fact a good combination of melodious Classical - jazz - rock fusion . but , no one reaches the perfection in touching the high red point to introduce this idea to proggers ,, ( specially during the 70's ) with the exception of Zappa & John , there was 2 releases for Ponty namely ( Aurora & Mystical ) ( elegant gypsy & electric rendez - vous of De Meola ) - ( oneness & caravanserai fr Santana ) not to tell you proggers about Love , Devotion ... santana's ,,, and , Yamashta's various artist double album live namely GO ... live //////// Between 1975 & 1981 , many bands were competing to create a new image of classical - jazz fusion in form of new age to satisfy the hunger of proggers . but no one ,in my opinion reaches this point except few releases at that time . And ,Surely MYSTICAL ADVENTURES was one of them it reaches the top in openning a new windows between rock & jazz in a smooth , clear , harmonious , talented performance from a team that i really respect . Remark == Ecm was the producer of mainly 80 % of the best new age releases between 1977 & 1988 as far as i know in this matter . So , we must all go for hunting ........
