CD Reviews

Classic Fusion
Massena Man | Massena, NY USA | 11/02/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Bought this double LP in 1981 after hearing Tocatta, which sounds like a modern rock instrumental, even though it was written by JS Bach a few hundred years ago! Tracks 1-7 are fabulous but my personal favorite is Scipio Parts 1 & 2. One sour note: on the Cd Scipio fades about one minute earlier than it does on the vinyl version. Guess they had to shave something to get it all on one CD. Overall a great example of how jazz,rock,classical and pop can be combined to make great songs. Intelligent and fun!"
Excellent classical guitar/rock
