3.0 out of 5 stars Someone is showing their age May 11, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
No, it's not the performance that shows it's age. After all it's an amazing trio supplemented by some great players. It's the material that keeps this at three stars for me. Vinnie Colaiuta, as always does not disappoint. He always plays as though it is his last day on Earth. But, this is not enough to overcome the material. As we all know Robben Ford and Jimmy Haslip are great players. Robben shows his Hendrix influence and Haslip, when he chooses, really shows us why he is one of the great bassists. However, I wanted more. I want to be exilarated after hearing a group of players like this. Please, no more cosmic lyrics. I suppose I'm being hard on this record but these are among the best players alive. This is a solid recording and one all fusion oriented listeners will enjoy. But for those of us who seek inspiration...those of us who need these guys to be in our faces, leaving us inspired and breathless, this is not the record. Unless you are a drummer, which I happen to be, because Vinnie never fails to make you laugh or cry depending upon your mood at the time. Next record give us more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ford, Haslip & Colaiuta tear it up! May 9, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This disc jams and wails! Taking the advice of the esteemed reviewers of this site and being a Robben Ford fan, I got this CD. What a great bunch of unbelievable tracks! From the opening number "The Hong Kong Incident" through the tenth and final track "Aurora" this is an all around great CD. All ten tracks on this disc is full of outstanding instrumentals and jams.
Led by the legendary Ford on guitar, Jazz veteran Vinnie Colaiuta on drums and bassist Jimmy Haslip, individually, all accomplished musicians in their own right. But together you find out quickly by listening to this disc that these guys are all very good at what they do and put out a tight blues-rock sound.
If you are a fan of one of these three gentlemen or all three go out and purchase this disc and hear them tear it up on this 2001 release. It's worth the trip!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best. August 16, 2002
By Aaron
Format:Audio CD
I've owned this album for a couple of months now, and I love it as much now as I did the first time I heard it. Vinnie has always been one of the Gods of the drumkit, and this album doesn't disappoint. His ability to be technically astounding while seeming so laid-back and subtle never ceases to amaze me. Jimmy Haslip makes me want to cry, especially when I remember that he plays his six-string bass upside down. And Robben Ford, well, what can I say about him that hasn't already been said by a thousand other people? He's amazing. He's soulful. He's eclectic. And though I'd never really been a fan before this album, I'm hooked now. So for anyone reading this review, if you like your jazz fusion laced with plenty of blues influence, BUY THIS ALBUM!!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best releases this year! March 28, 2002
Format:Audio CD
According to ancient Chinese herbalism there are three basic energies known as the The Three Treasurers or "Jing Chi". When the basic energies are used in abundance they generate a feeling of well being. The title choosen for this CD seems all too appropriate. Here, Colaiuta, Ford and Haslip combine their energies and produce one of the finest releases this year. The CD can best be described as fusion, although regular jazz fans and guitarist should also find plenty to like about the disc. The CD opens with the rhythmic "Up the Line" which could easily be mistaken for a track off Eric Johnson's Alien Love Child project and rarely slows down the tempo. There are only two vocal tracks here, the first "Going Nowhere" features Robben Ford on vocals and the second, "In My Dream" features the vocals of bass and keyboardist, Jimmy Haslip. As you might expect, Robben Ford plays his telecaster like a man possessed while Vinnie Colaiuta's drums and Jimmy Haslip's bass fill the background air like a sonic boom. This is great stuff.

Format:Audio CD
A very strong collaboration among three virtuosos:guitar wiz Robben Ford of Blue Line fame,drummer extraordinaire Vinnie Colaiuta(Sting) and bass maestro Jimmy Haslip,"Jing Chi" is a very pleasant surprise.The songs are a mixture of instrumental and vocal,showcasing the fantastic talents of the three soloists.A very fine album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Colaiuta is the man January 3, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Buy this album if for nothing else than to hear Vinnie Colaiuta play the drums. The amount of groove and technique that he puts forth is worth price alone. This album is a little "jammy" per say, but they pull it off simply because they are all such accomplished musicians - it wouldn't work if the musicianship wasn't there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very unusual, very entertaining, very fun album March 15, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is quite an experience, and somewhat difficult to categorize. Yes, it's fusion, but different from any other fusion effort I've ever heard. This is just a cool album, where the players take some risks and most of it works. Robben Ford's playing is very stretched out and apparently endlessly inventive. The rapport between the musicians is very strong. It really sounds like they set out to have some fun and did so.
I'd definitely want to hear more of this sort of thing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a lot of Balance between all three March 19, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This disc was a disaapointment for me. The main reason is this is pretty much a showcase for Robben Ford. Now I like Robben Ford and he is a great guitarist but the problem is WHERE IS VINNIE?? Vinnie and Jimmy are given supporting roles to Ford. If this was pitched as a Robben Ford solo disc I would give it more stars. However, it was pitched as a collaboration between three top notch musicians and only one of them is given room to show his talents. The disc has a couple of vocal songs that are pretty worthless. Haslip is given only a couple of breaks to display his fretless work and Colaiuta is left out. This man is one of the greatest drummers alive and has won polls to prove it but on this disc he is nowhere. He does the best that he can to make the rhythm interesting but he isn't given much to work with. The first couple of songs are good but,as far as the group dynamic is concerned, it is downhill from there. The only positive thing about this disc is the playing of Ford. He uses a variety of tones and effects to showcase the fact that he is a great blues/rock orientated player. Shades of Carlton/Beck/Vaughn/Johnson are all heard while he keeps his own style. The man is very impressive on this. If you are a Robben Ford fan then get this immediately. However, if you are like me and were looking for a trio then you might want to restrain yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars A winner!
This cd is progressive and edgy. Vinnie's drumming prowess is second to none, no matter what style. Great musicians bringin' the goods. Great price too.

Really excellent fusion album, leaning closer to the 70's jazz rock than many current so called fusion bands, who sound more like smooth jazz. Read more
