i am so gay for this band. seriously, i would let them all have their way with me.
apart from the bassist, who was merely superb, every one of them an absolute virtuoso, a master of their art. john mclaughlin is quite possibly the most technically gifted guitarist ever. billy cobham is easily one of my favourite drummers. and we're not talking a talented jam band here, they played compositionally intricate music and mixed it with frantic improvisation. the first two albums are near faultless.
does anybody else share my love?
does anybody even know what i'm talking about? if not, please get some bombastic stadium jazz-fusion in your life ASAP
