If you were to listen to one fusion artists this year, this CD would be the one! The multi-talents of Jeff Berlin, Scott Henderson and the incredible Dennis Chambers, blew me away in the first three bars of track one. I was really curious because after track one, they're doing a lot of Weather Report tunes and their pick is not just the basic ones. Listening to each tune, you could swear that there's keywords in it. But there is none. And I bought a lot of Jeff Berlin solo CDs in the past couple of years and he really shines on this one. I'm sorry next to Jaco Pastorius, Berlin was the next one that showed me exploratory"base surgery"! Getting back to the band. Their sound and their sense of"gel"are the utmost quality in making a trio kick butt! I'm really at a loss for words the CD, because I was impressed that they did a few songs and then did the rest of the album doing Weather Report. You matche up with any band that does WR and they will out surpass them. When you listen to these tunes, keep telling yourself, this is only a trio! Fantastic guys, thanks so much for proving to the jazz fusion world and listeners, that there is still something worth listing to! I feel the jazz fusion these past couple years has been very lame and really not satisfactory for the jazz musician's ear. Please buy this CD, it's well worth it! A lot of people think that Mike Portney is the greatest drummer around. Listen the Dennis Chambers on this CD, you'll find there's another player in the house! Overall an excellent, excellent CD.

When three acclaimed musician's musicians get together the result can often be disappointing, but in this case it's nothing short of stellar. Scott Henderson (Tribal Tech, Zawinul Syndicate), Jeff Berlin (Bruford, ABWH, Allan Holdsworth) and Dennis Chambers (McLaughlin, Funkadelic, Santana)is delivering high-octane fusion power trio at it's very best.

And not particularily depending on virtuoisty and blistering superfast soloing - although there are plenty of that - but more on great compositions. Mostly Weater Report related with tunes by Joe Zawinul and Wayne Shorter that are giving a true jazzy treatment exploring the harmonic content as well as providing excellent vehicles for soloing.

Together with John Mclaughlin's Now Here This this is testimony that fusion is very much alive and kicking in 2012, one might even say, it's better than ever!

Required listening for hearing how Masters interpret a trio setting. This has Scott Henderson showing-off...I mean demonstrating (I don't believe he ever intentionally plays notes just to say "look at me") that he can handle anything from blues to bebop w/ musical conviction. He grooves w/ DC smackingly. I haven't heard much from Jeff B in years, but his tone is beautifully humongous, groovin' and as comfortable as your favorite worn in shoes, and did I mention his tone...killer, really it is something many will be enticed to try and copy!! Mr. Dennis Chambers is groovin like he always does, but I didn't realize he can lay back and swing and still have that DC spice that keeps it all identifiable as Dennis. This should be a staple in everyone's collection of threading the needle of high level fusionopoly the HBC way. This recording will probably go up in value as the years pass by, and it becomes harder to get.

Great musicians just jamming and laying down some good tunes and grooves. Smart tunes that manage to stay rocking and funky. Love the weather report cover of 'mysterious traveler' and billy cobham's 'stratus'.

So I'm a big fan of Henderson and his playing on HBC is a treat. If you're a fan, and more for the really hard Tribal Tech stuff and not so much his Dog Party blues stylings, then buy this. And Chambers is one of the top fusion drummers today.

So why only 4 stars? In a word: covers. On repeat listening, they've been growing on me. But these particular covers were from some of the seminal fusion works of my formative years. They're embedded in my brain in a way that doesn't happen anymore. If Scott et al chose these for tribute value, fine, but I'm sure they're capable of delivering some engaging original material. Hopefully they can focus on a little writing for the next round (or at least cover something that isn't already programmed into the neuronal pathways of my youth).

If you're unencumbered with names like Hancock, Zawinul, or Cobham, and awesome contemporary (and fully resurrected from its heyday) fusion from some masters of the art is your thing, then you won't go wrong with this CD.

So, the first Jeff Berlin album I got hip to back in mid 80's was Vox Humana. It was the first time I heard Scott Henderson. I was like "WOW" This is some amazing stuff! Jeff to me is kind of like Jack Bruce on steroids, in his own way, but definitely the flavor. I have seen Hendrix 5 times, Zappa , probably 50 or more times, Jeff Beck, SRV, Mahavishnu,Van HAlen, you name them, Ive seen most everybody.

But man, that album really turned my head. It was SO different. Shortly after that, I got to see Jeff's band at Hop Singh's in Santa Monica. When I went, Scott had left the band and been replaced by none other than Frank Gambale, who totally blew my mind also.
I spoke with Frank after the show and he suggested I enroll at GIT. The following year I did and got to see Scott Henderson Gary Willis Frank Gambale Jeff Berlin and a plethera of other great great musicians all the time, and take classes from them as well.
Since then I have followed all these guys through the years, I own almost everything Scott has done, alot of what Jeff has done, and so many things with Dennis on them from Tower of Power to big band to Scofield to funk-Parliament and these three guys are some of my absolute most favorite musicians on the planet.

First of all, nobody gets tone like Scott Henderson. The wild choking the s*** out of the notes, while delivering incredibly thoughtful, tasteful lines, sheer speed with Jeff Beck type artistry with the whammy bar, is incomparable. Jeff's tone-come on-it is to die for. The authority in Jeff's playing is so amazing. He holds it down and plays groove, solos like a mo fo' and is the glue between these other two fabulous players. Dennis Chambers is probably my favorite drummer in the world.
