A Great Album Of Modern Jazz Fusion!...

(4 out of 5 stars)
"In 1990, with the participation of Bob Berg (Tenor Sax), Mitch Forman (Piano & Midi), John Patitucci (Electric Bass), Wayne Shorter (Soprano Sax), Alex Acuna (Percussions), Mike Stern (Guitar), Allan Holdsworth (Guitar & Synthaxe) and the percussionist Andrea Marcelli, this album presents a great modern Jazz Fusion musical concept.
Although all the tracks are compositions of Andrea Marcelli, the melodies are well driven and supported by the saxes and the electric guitars... this kind of jazz reminds the groups like the Elektric Jazz Band of keyboardist Chick Corea; the good and tasty guitar phrasing of Mike Stern in his interpretations reminds me the participations of guitarist Carlos Rios with Gino Vannelli in the "Brother To Brother" album from 1978; Allan Holdsworth, still hooked on the Synthaxe at this stage of his career, shows his expertise and guitar wisdom in the tracks: "Final Project", "Love Remembered" and "Lights".... But by the way, all the tracks of the album are:
1.Exit, 2.Silent Will, 3.Final Project, 4.Different Moments, 5.Love Remembered, 6.Three Small Dreams, 7.Everyday, and 8.Lights
