Larry Coryell - Spaces 1970 @ 192 (Jazz fusion)

The best place to start in discussing this album is to list the personnel:

Larry Coryell - guitar
John McLaughlin - guitar
Chick Corea - keyboards
Miroslav Vitous - bass
Billy Cobham - drums

Enough said!

Also, read the article posted on the back cover, a review of the album in Rolling Stone.

There are many similiarities between Coryell and Mclaughlin, they have spent their careers constantly changing and searching for new ways to musically express themselves and they both possess lightening fingers. But this is not just an example of how fast they can play, these are, as you would expect from this collection of creme de la creme musicians, stunning examples of fusion, from the jazz perspective.

Note that McLaughlin, Cobham and Corea all played with Miles Davis and Vitous was the first bassist with Weather Report. His contributions to that band are much overlooked. His "Mountains In The Clouds" is a must have.

I'm not saying anymore, listen and be impressed.
