That's an interesting mix and it gives me a good idea about what turns your crank.

I'd suggest you might add some from the first UK album. Holdsworth's work is great on that, as is all the rest of the crew (being a fan of all things Bruford, I am biased).

I recognize that this is YOUR loist and reflects your choices, but If I inherited your collection and were to expand on it, there would be a pile of Bitches Brew to Agharta/Live/Evil Miles on there. the problem with that is that it would veer sharply from some of the technical aesthics of your list. Have to acknowledge the deep debt of the listees to teh effort, though. And it reflects my own love.

To that end, I'd also add in some Sonny Sharrock, James "Blood" Ulmer and suchlike...and then Derek Bailey (WOW)...then it spiral way out to other things altogether. As art is wont.

Support live music!

DS - KILLER suggestions - I changed the title of the thread to "A" list instead of "my" list - LOL
Yeah I have Bitches Brew and the first UK - haven't gotten around to screening for the list ( i have about a 500GB hard drive almost full of tunes to screen)

I'll check the others , too

I like some of the 70's ornette stuff w/the out funk which I think needs to be on there

What about 'A Tribute to Jack Johnson'? That's two very rockin' tunes right there, as well.

Coryell's Live at Montreaux is one that got me going. I liked the music so much I didn't even mind that his tone was awful. In fact, I think his tone is one of the worst for most of his fusion stuff. Still one of my favorites.

Ok, a few more....but Albums, I can't remember all the song titles, lol.......or even albums, I remember the bands being good....

Narada Michael Walden "Garden of Love Light" and "Awakening" some great Ray Gomez on those 2.......

Steve Topping "Time and Distance" cool git player and with the IOU band!

The John Lee/Gerry Brown/Eef Albers/Darryl Thompson records were real good...

Buzzy Feiten's Full Moon band, also really good.....

Yeah dude - MONSTER LA studio cat rightfully recognized as a peer of the likes of Carlton, Graydon  Lukather, Ritenour !! He was doin' it at the same time they were (70's - 80's)

One could say that Robben Ford nicked a little of his phrasing from Buzzy (well, I would say). There's some You toobage floating around when he was in Paul Butterfield's band at Woodstock. Some burnin stuff for sure, and for the time.......

Toobage :D

I'll have to check Buzz out. I just figured he was a luthier/inventor or something, like Floyd Rose. I didn't realize he played, too.

It's hard finding all his recorded stuff, but he's great. Old school kinda player,  but the lines he would do, nobody was playing like that in the 60's. And his funk stuff was really good too (The Rascal's "Jungle Walk" is a famous one). There's You toobage ;D of him in various things, if you like Robben Ford, that kind of "advanced" blues/jazz playing, you'll probably dig it. He's from NY, I know a few older guys that would see him play from time to time here and that knew him casually. He was definitely an "under the radar" kinda guy....

I see fusion as an bit of everything/anything but always having an element of jazz (whatever that is) in it.

Lots of Miles Davis missing: Agharta, Live Evil, Bitches Brew, Jack Johnson especially!

Then the best fusion record ever - Lenny White's Venusian Summer featuring Doug Rauch.

Then Welcome, Lotus, Caravanserai by Santana who were a great fusion band for a brief period.

Then Gong - Gazeuse (called Espresso II in the US) featuring Allan Holdsworth.

...and the best Jeff Beck fusion album is Wired!
