I grew up listening to Jazz-Rock-Fusion. The Mahavishnu Orchestra were one of the finest collection of musicians ( some say the finest) ever, in this genre . I can’t think of anything found in today’s music that is comparable, either in technical ability or compositional skill. This is one of my favorite pieces from this … More They don’t make ’em like this any more ..
This track, from the 1975 Soft Machine album Bundles features guitarist Alan Holdsworth. Holdsworth was an innovator and virtuoso. He passed away in 2017. I realise this won’t be to everyone’s taste but the musicianship is phenomenal. They don’t make music like this anymore.
From one of the great Jazz Fusion albums of the era – or any era! Featuring the late Tommy Bolin on guitar. He was 22 when this album was recorded in 1973. I doubt this would be featured on Idols! Happy Tuesday Ark
