Brown Street - Joe Zawinul

Joe leads a stellar group of weather report alumni into the cauldron of new arrangments of WR classics with the WDR Big Band. The music sparkles with fresh inspiration, delicate thunder and moving rain. Goes down a storm.

Industrial Zen - John McLaughlin

The spritual maze of innocence and experience, abstract journeys and views from the highests peaks. John assembles a host of partners for these explorations of past and future, spirit and flesh. Sublime.

Heavy Machinery - Anders Johansson, Jens Johanssen & Allan Holdsworth

A trio of delights with those rich fusion riffs exchanging between Allan on guitar and Jens keyboards with Anders the key sonic beat keeper. Fine machinery indeed.
