Fusion Discussion / RIP Allan Holdsworth

Just heard the news from his daughter's post on FB. :(

Must have been very sudden.

An amazing musician who leaves a wealth of music for the rest of us to try and figure out someday.

Introductions & other topics / Getting the computer audio into the stereo

Since this topic was being discussed in the "what we're listening to today" thread, I'd thought I'd move it over here with an update.

I purchased the Arcam rDAC converter, which is proving to work very well with my stereo. Hell, it even makes YouTube sound good. Now, I just have to get around to ripping a zillion CDs. Ugh.

I also recommend the foobar2000 media player. Seems easy to use and does what I need.

Hi everyone!  I'm a longtime fusion fan and musician.  My tastes pretty much run the gamut of fusion.  A lot of the old standbys like Mahavishnu and Weather Report, to the "groovier" side of fusion as on all those great jazz-funk albums that Blue Note released in the '70s by Donald Byrd, Gary Bartz, Bobbi Humphrey etc.

Beyond fusion, it gets interesting.  Put my mp3 player on shuffle, and you're likely to get psychedelic-era Temptations followed by Black Sabbath.  I use my player all day at the office, and I think my co-workers are afraid of me.  :)

I also love acoustic jazz of the modal and free varieties.  Not so much into the pure bebop stuff, but maybe I'll get there eventually.  Lately, I've also gotten into Indo-jazz.

If you go to the BandCamp link in my signature, you can check out my own music, which is largely improvised, often free electric music that is sort of a cross between electric-era Miles, Frank Zappa's guitar work, and crazy free playing inspired by guys like Sam Rivers and Albert Ayler.

I've been hoping for a long time that someone with more tech skills than I would start a fusion forum, and I'm thrilled this place exists!
