Review

As one of the pioneers of jazz-rock perhaps the pioneer in the ears of some Larry Coryell deserves a special place in the history books. --All Music Guide

Larry Coryell s name isn t bandied around much now, but in the 1970s he was almost as big a guitar star as John McLaughlin, and an equivalent influence on the development of early electric jazz-rock fusion ... Coryell s crackling uptempo bursts and engagingly rough-hewn energy give this familiar music a vividness and infectious enthusiasm. THE GUARDIAN/p> You don t even have to be a fan of his or a guitar aficionado to dig this disc; anyone who likes that old school funky rock-jazz with a few delectable diversions will find a lot to like about it. The old Larry Coryell, the Father of Fusion Guitar, is back. --Something Else!

At times like a musical flamethrower strapped to a bucking bronco Coryell has more depth, energy, creativity and chops than any 10 good guitarists combined. This is a powerful statement from the 70 year old visionary. An exhilarating, angular musical journey of the highest order.

Coryell plugging in and getting nasty... it reminds me of his Vanguard recordings like Live at the Village Gate. Highly recommended!

The guitar virtuoso Larry Coryell has had and up and down career. And quite unjustified being overshadowed by others - be it jimi Hendrix or John Mclaughlin - for most of his long time as a first class musician.

Starting of as psychedelic pioneer with Free Spirits and then producing a string of fabuluos jazz/rock albums like At The Village Gate / Live 1971 and Coryell before almost hitting the big time with the splendid Eleventh House. And performing and recording with the likes of Jack Bruce, Wolfgang Dauner, John Mclaughlin, Carla Bley, Gary Burton. But after that he seemed to loose focus and producing a string of rather dissatisfactory albums - except for some forrays into world music, Larry like McLaughlin always been inspired by Indian music.

Here close to the 70 mark he has gone back to his roots and made a magnificent almost psychedelic jazz-rock-soul album. Most of the tracks recorded live in the studio and definitely have a jammy, creative vibe. Mostly going back to the (power) trio format though Chester Thompson (T.o.P., Santana) guests on a few tracks, lifting the spirits even higher. The only thing missing is Larry's vocals!

Like his old partner McLaughlin he seems as vital and inspirated here in is older days. a must for all guitar and fusion lovers.

Larry Coryell is certainly proving that if there's a fire in your soul that it needs to released and shared. I've loved his work through the years and it's great to see him return to fusion with a vengeance. Note to Jean the reviewer...have your ears checked.

Just saw him about 6 months ago . A reunion of 11th House with everyone but Mike Mandel (who was scheduled ,but sick). ASide from having to sit down , he was a Force. Sitting 2 feet away his playing was Glorious. Sure , he flubbed a few notes ,but who doesn't ? In Pursuit of that higher plane - he's still Fearless & Searching.
This reminds of the old days ,as some have said here. What an Influence he has been !

Coryell's "The Lift", release is his best work in a long time. Finally putting out a fusion album that sounds fresh and exciting, that gets better with each listen. Unlike the other two Hive releases that were straight jazz, that can get tedious at times, this is a welcomed release.

Larry blisters on this cd! Soulful shredding, bluesy and ballsy, traditional to fusion. Aspiring guitarists--listen and learn from a master.
