Return to Fusion

"I'm ashamed to admit that I did not know of this CD until 2001. This from a fusion fan who has an extensive Return to Forever, Stanley Clarke and Lenny White collection. This album is awesome. It is reminiscent of the hey days of fusion, yet it strikes me as being very cutting edge. "V-Wave" is one of my favorite cuts as well as "Toys" and the remake of "After the Cosmic Rain" from the RTF album; "Hymn of the Seventh Galaxy". Kudos to Stan and Lenny for assembling these great musicians and bringing Fusion into the new Millenium."
Hardcore fusion at its best

"I'm a big fan of groups like Sypro Gyra and the Rippingtons, so I thought I'd give Vertu a whirl. It's definately a step in the "heavy" direction - which I find refreshing. At times, Vertu sounds positively out of control, a runaway jazz-rock locomotive. But herein lies the beauty. When Vertu hits the breaks for a soft interlude, they become absolutely hypnotic. I love the intesity of this CD. One small complaint: at times, the rest of the band buries pianist Rachel Z, who adds such a classy, delicate touch that you yearn to hear more of her. Next time, give her some room!"
Masters doing what masters do

"I came across this cd in my usual cd store in Caracas, just seeing Stanley Clarkey in the label I knew it would promise best class jazz. However, I was not prepared for the powerful performance of all the masters. Fusion, post-fusion whatever it is, its just wonderful music. As a travelling salesman on the road this is the kind of music that sets you in fire and makes the road the ideal stage to let it sink in.
Guitar reminded me of that 70's spanish virtuso Max Suñé who led the barcelonean group Iceberg. My only question is, why did they stop recording?"
