Eighth album for the electric guitar wizard who along with peers such as John McLaughlin and Chick Corea invented jazz rock fusion in the early 70's. This album fits snugly into the genre with tasty guitar licks folded into invigorating passages of electric rock. Housed in a hard card mini-gatefold LP sleeve.
Larry Coryell made his earliest recordings as a lead artist for Vanguard from 1968-75. After working for a variety of other labels he came back in 1979 to record this album. Coryell still sounds the same as in his fusion days and is joined here by three of the Brubeck brothers. There are a few Brubeck numbers and a selection co-written by Al DiMeola and Paco DeLucia and Coryell is in fine form throughout. Original artwork and mini card sleeve.
1973 release from the US jazz fusion man. Combining synthesizers, wind instruments and guitars, this modern rock take on traditional jazz rhythms is vibrant and electric and was the forerunner for the Return To Forever Band who took jazz rock fusion into the mainstream. Nice version of Jimmy Webb's "P.F. Sloan" too. Mini-gatefold LP card sleeve...

Jazz Rock at its least pompous as Coryell handles virtually all the bass as well as guitar and vocals. Elvin Jones sits in for Bob Moses on two cuts.

Collection of the guitarist’s early recordings for Vanguard (on an excellent double disc), it chronicles what one of the musicians who presided over the birth of jazz-rock fusion was up to before that blessed event.The presence of major players such as Elvin Jones and Jimmy Garrison, not to mention Coryell’s own virtuosity, guarantees that. But this is by no means a straight jazz compilation. While you’ll hear traces of Jim (as in Hall), there’s also more than a little Jimi (as in Hendrix); along with the Wes (Montgomery), there’s plenty of the West (coast). Larry just plays his guitar; he plays it loud or soft, fast or slow, alone or with others.Albums represented here include: ‘Lady Coryell’, ‘Larry Coryell & The Eleventh House At Montreux’ and ‘Planet End’.
1968 through 1973 sides from the guitar virtuoso joined variously by John McLaughlin, Randy Brecker, Miroslav Vitous and a staggering line up of drummers including Elvin Jones, Billy Cobham, Bernard Purdie and Alphonse Mouzon.

Larry Coryell can still be argued as one of the greatest guitarists of all time. A complete original, he was asked to play on sessions by countless musicians, mostly due to his progressive style of play, which primarily fused the ideas of rock and jazz into one intense and funky entity.This DVD is a retrospective show that primarily looks back on those years of discovery through a live show that is as every bit electrifying as when these songs were first recorded. Bernard 'Pretty? Purdie (a legend in his own right), James Valentine of Maroon 5 and David Hidalgo of Los Lobos drop by to show off their talents in homage to Coryell. The set also has a bonus DVD featuring interviews and rehearsal footage so we can see how music is created.Region 0 disc.
