3.0 out of 5 stars I Expected More November 4, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
With over two dozen highly accomplished musicians participating on this project, I had high hopes this would be the Jazz Fusion CD of the year. Though it is very listenable, this CD fell far short of my expectations. As for fusion; this work leans much more heavily to the Rock side.

3.0 out of 5 stars Waiting for Vol. 2 January 24, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Agreed. Very listenable, but somewhat unfocused and no cojones. There's an edge that is missing. It shows up only briefly in track 2. Maybe for the next one someone would invite, say, Allan Holdsworth, Herbie Hancock, Jan Hammer, Jean-Luc Ponty; But next time let's get rid of the funky vamp that seems to be in every song; makes it sound like smooth jazz.

5.0 out of 5 stars great musicianship. December 28, 2012
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
i noticed it because it listed it as a Fusion album and it is a good one with all the great musicians of fusion. And some not so old so it works.

3.0 out of 5 stars Should be Awesome with this class of musicians! June 1, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
But, it didn't get the chance to be 'all it could be'. Seems like recorded jams by picked groups of the best talent on the planet. But it seems to fall short of the expectations from the stars lists, due to whatever reasons, they didn't have time or the commitment to the project or what, it just never reaches to the hights I imagined when I read those names playing on each of these songs. That said, there are great moments and grooves and some excititing exchanges along the path, and these mucisians are never in normal or common territory. They play awesome in their sleep so it is well worth the time and money to check it out.

Format:Audio CD
you know I have done a lot of jazz review reviews for jazz artists for some time now. This album I heard about I was waiting with utter delight for its release. All stars like Rick Wakeman, Billy Sherwood, Billy Cobham, Steve Morse, and the list goes on. I thought that when you connect All-Star rock players with All-Star jazz players, you would get some tremendous product effect. With minds like these, the most gifted and accurate writers and players, I thought by reading the reviews, before the CD came out, that this would be an excellent CD. I was sorry to say that I was very disappointed in this project. What I got the CD, I listen to it particularly like I do when I do my jazz reviews. A different way of listening to an album, but I wanted to reassure myself that these All-Star players would be in the right perspective. The big word that I have for all of you that will listen to the CD soon, and the major factor that is prevalent and is focused on any type of fusion, whether it's jazz or rock is consistency. Even the first two tracks I listen to about 10 or 11 times trying to get the flow or try to feel what they were trying to express. I grew up in a musical family and attended a music school and heard a lot of very eclectic jazz artists and albums. This didn't fit either category. They would start with the groove, and then branch out, which are supposed to do, but not throw everything in the kitchen sink all in at once. And that's how it sounded. I think Steve Morse played most of the solos throughout this CD and I respect him highly, but in this situation the lead guitarist seemed to overpower any type of "fusion"that there was to be. Tonight I just finished listening to the whole CD, which would be about 18 times. Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars truthiness in advertising November 13, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It was advertised as a band effort bringing these artists together. It was actually a collection of different pieces by different ensembles.
