There IS fusion beyond Miles Davis

"For a mere 6 or 7 bucks, you can buy this album, a compilation of tracks that originally appeared on the Muse label in the 1970's, edited and sequenced by Mocean Worker to expand on the funk and textures inherent in the original recordings. And what results is a picture of fusion that is simultaneously melodic and funky, spacy but arranged, and almost never easy. Yet it doesn't really sound much at all like the music of Miles Davis during the same period, and that's a compliment, only because most non-Davis fusion I had heard before this was either incoherent or begging for the pop charts. Plus it's refreshing that most of these tracks have no guitar, putting them closer to a gospel/African/soul base but with avant-garde touches, all with thick, warm sound."
One of the best albums ever!

"I stumbled onto a used copy of this album a few years ago and decided that at $... it was worth checking out. When I got home and listened to it for the first time I was totally blown away. It was like nothing I'd ever heard before. I've just ordered my 3rd copy because past roommates have twice managed to take it with them when they move away. If you are curious about fusion but don't know where to start, I highly recommend brewing yourself a pot of coffee, turning off the phone, and giving this album one listen straight through, with no interruptions. It just might change your world."
