So I've got a few jazz fusion albums and a bit of personal news that has made me start to dig into them. I'm being moved up in my university's top jazz band from bari sax to lead alto for one semester, as the current lead player is going to study abroad next semester. I'm very excited, and a bit nervousness, and that mix has led me to want to listen to more jazz. Welp, I went to dip my toe in and it landed in the fusion pond and now I want to know all about it. What are some of your favorite fusion artists and records? I currently have these few: Mahavishnu Orchestra - Birds Of Fire Al Di Meola - Elegant Gypsy Weather Report - Heavy Weather Alan Holdsworth - Sand Pat Metheny Group - s/t currently listening to Birds Of Fire and loving it!
