Mahavishnu Orchestra
CD Reviews
Visions of the Emerald Beyond
Review by Gary Hill
Well, I tend to figure that fusion that leans heavily towards the rock end of the spectrum qualifies as progressive rock. In that case, there's no question where Mahavishnu Orchestra belongs.

Mahavishnu Orchestra - Live at Montreux DVD
Review by Gary Hill
This is a two DVD set featuring two Mahavishnu appearances at the Montreux Jazz Festival. For those who think that only the original lineup of the group is really Mahavishnu, this is probably a set to pass on.

A contender for best of the year, this is arguably Sherwood’s best solo album ever.

Billy Cobham - Compass Point
Review by G. W. Hill

I was kind of expecting a fusion album here. I’d have to say that there are a few moments that land there, but overall this is more pure jazz.

Various Artists - Encores, Legends and Paradoxes
Review by Gary Hill
With a cast of players that reads like a prog "who`s who", this ELP tribute takes the classics and makes them fresh and new again. The result is an incredibly listenable piece of music that really entertains.

Jean-Luc Ponty - Life Enigma
Review by Gary Hill
Jean-Luc Ponty's particular blend of fusion type music has always been intriguing and his violin work has always been top notch. I have included this review in the progressive rock category because I really feel that it fits the bill.

Billy Cobham - Palindrome
Review by Larry Toering

Billy Cobham is usually referred to as contemporary jazz or jazz/fusion artist, but he also crossed over into prog territory and it appears it has not left him after all these years.

Jerry Goodman - Violin Fantasy
Review by G. W. Hill

This album is fully instrumental. It’s a great disc, too. Some of the music here has appeared elsewhere (although most of the time in different arrangements)

McLaughlin, Surman, Berger, Martin & Holland - Where Fortune Smiles: Remastered Edition
Review by Gary Hill
This album was really a supergroup meeting of the fusion minds. I have to say that it lands too far into the freeform, Rock In Opposition type territory for my tastes.
