    I agree - "Fusion" is a matter of taste, and in general I'm not much of a fan of it. But there are a few exceptions, and Stanley Clarke is one of them.

    I came across Carey Bell by accident for a recommended test/listening track for HiFi, and like it so much I decided to hunt down some of his recordings. Initially I went for this complication which is excellent. All relatively unknown Blues artists, but all very good musicians. I might have to get some more of this series.

    Louis Jordan - 'Caldonia'



    I had forgotten how good this is. Jordan strides the gap between the Blues and Jazz with ease.

    **Ive studied deeply in the philosophies and religions, but cheerfulness kept breaking through**

    "An old man sleeps with his conscience at night, while young kids sleep with their dreams"

    "Justice is sinking to the bottom of the sea, And it feels like I'm living in the wasteland of the free"

    It was the weakest practical joke since Cardinal Wolsey got his nob out at Hampton Court and stood at the end of the passage pretending to be a door!
