Chick Corea is kind of fruity, and so is his band Return to Forever, but I dig this album.
This is a one song album. Sure, A Passage to Bangkok isn't too bad, and a couple other songs are decent, but lets face it, the album is all about the one song. And a fantastic song it is.
Another Camel album I really enjoy. I haven't listened to some of this Prog shit in years, I must revisit some of it.
One day I have to get more stuff by Weather Report because I think their stuff absolutely slays. Fantastic jazz fusion.
I think this might be my favourite of his albums. As a bass player (at one time), Pastorius' stuff influenced me a lot and I maintain he's the best of all time.
Maybe their best all around album, this one features their most popular hit. However, most of the album is even better.
Zappa did a lot of relatively accessible jazz fusion in the '70's, and this is another one. Some of his biggest hits came from this album (Black Napkins, Disco Boy)
This is Waits' best. Bluesy piano, his signature growl, and songs about crippling depression. I don't know what's not to like. Step Right Up is brilliant.
