I would surmise that all the interest in Eastern philosophy (Tales) and musical stylings (Mahvishnu John) are largely traceable to The Beatles making their interest in figures like the Mahrashi Mayhesh Yogi and Ravi Shankar so high profile. '73-'74 was really the trailing edge of the pop culture's infatuation with all things Eastern, with George Harrison and John M. beiong the main two to really continue to carry the proverbial torch.

BTW has anyone seen the Concert For George DVD with that great performance by Ravi Shankar's Orchestra? Amazing stuff!! Anyone who can literally jam on a single chord for half an hour and keep it interesting has my deep respect. And his daughter is not only a smokin' sitar player, she's rather the babe. :D

oh but I do love the Ancient! Amazing, weird synthesis of styles going on there. Dark Magus by Miles is up there too, though I find the material on Bitches Brew to be a tad fresher. Lately I've been spinning the Complete Jack Johnson sessions a lot. Miles reinvented the genre on more than one occasion, much like the Beatles. Kinda Blue still blows me away every time I listen to it. To be sure, to a degree, much of this is subjective so I'll definitely give Mahavishnu another spin or three. I appreciate the recommendations.

Once again ther are the "Beatles." I wonder if there is anything they haven't influenced. Their fabric seems to extend everywhere. Do you remember in the early "60's Beatle trading cards were available? I like the one was Paul the walrus. I dated a girl once who had a pair of Beatle panties. It was a little intimidating as a young man that Mcartney's face was right in her wonderous garden. Oh well. Thanks Fred for the insight and the reminder of Beatle memories.

I think you're old enough to be exposed to this sort of thing, Brian.

Er, not exposed, er I mean, open to...no, ah (eek!)

I'll get my coat... :oops:

Hey Diehard, I didn't mean to offend anyone,especially the young ones. You must admit, that women do possess the most wonderous of "gardens."And believe me when I say, I kicked Mcartney right out of that "garden."

Since fusion has been mentioned, has anyone here heard the group Ohm? Its some real firey, guitar led fusion, featuring Chris Poland. He was an original member of Megadeth back in the 80's, but went the jazz route several years ago. No metal here, but the music certainly is aggressive. Really great stuff.
And now for something completly different...
