Review: this is a celebration of sorts: Stern is back after suffering serious injury to both arms. And he is playing splendidly! This is fusion electric jazz at it's best. The band is tight and the soloing is magnificent! A lot of guest musicians lend a hand, as well. All originals.
If You Like: John McLaughlin, Al Di Meola, John Abercrombie
