The Mahavishnu Orchestra is literally the perfect jam band.
There's John who is just making that guitar his submissive bitch with the excessive soloing and constant rhythm changes, then you have´╗┐ Jerry Goodman who mirrors whatever pattern John throws at him and augments the overall flow and texture of the solos, and of course there's Billy Cobham who is just bombastic and magnetic as can be with his percussive blasts.

This is a true Jazz jam- utterly spontaneous without missing a single step.

Make sure you check out Inner Mounting Flame too, ford. It's actually slightly better than this one imo.

The two are really close for me. I used to prefer this but lately I've been leaning more towards IMF.
