The good news is that Fusion for Miles is one heck of a great fusion record when taken on its own merits. It features a varied bunch of guitarists who range from the post bop sensibility of Pat Martino and Bill Connors, to more clear fusion from Jimmy Herring and Mike Stern, and the rock-centric approach of Warren Haynes and Steve Kimmock. Covering material from the late '50s ("So What") through the mid-'80s ("Splatch"), every guitarist digs into the solid foundation laid by the rhythm section
Titled Fusion for Miles: A Guitar Tribute, this set is a bit unusual. A five-piece band that includes Dave Liebman on soprano sets up grooves and backgrounds that sound like Miles Davis' bands of 1969-1971. A different guitarist is featured on each of the ten selections, with the biggest names being Mike Stern, Bill Frisell, Bill Connors, and Pat Martino. Ironically, those four are each featured on pre-fusion Davis-associated songs ("So What," "Nefertiti," "Eighty-One," and "Serpent's Tooth") that are performed with funk.
Last year the label released A Guitar Supreme: Giant Steps in Fusion Guitar. Such guitarists as Mike Stern, Larry Coryell, Eric Johnson, Steve Lukather, Greg Howe, Jeff Richman, Frank Gambale and others paid stringed tribute to the spirit of John Coltrane. This time around John McLaughlin and the legendary Mahavishnu Orchestra receive the treatment. Guitarist Jeff Richman was put in charge. He produced the album, arranged the tunes and even played. He hired an incredible backing band to support and augment the soloists, who recorded their parts later, consisting of drummer Vinnie Colaiuta, bassist Kai Eckhardt and keyboardist Mitch Forman. All three have the advantage of having played with John McLaughlin before-so they have some idea of his sensibilities. To have such superb musicians tackle McLaughlin's advanced compositions is major news.
