Wink Jeff Beck Blow By Blow on SACD - Glorified Porn Music or GENIUS?

http://www.avrev.com/music/revs/jeff_beck.html

One of the best records of the genre but my question to you is - does Jazz fusion outright suck?

Beck, clearly the physical model for Nigel Tufnel of Spinal Tap, is an amazing player and with production from Sir George Martin - Blow By Blow is a WELL crafted record.

Do you put on your purple pants (all people that like fusion own and wear purple pants) and jam out or do you skip this surround SACD?

Have owned this in multiple formats and never had purple pants I'm afraid.

When I first heard it at 16, I didn't "get it" on the first play and then it sinks in that Beck had re-invented himself. The album displays some fusion aspects but is also R&B and orchestral in spots. He showed us he had many different ideas and George Martin was there to help him realize them.

FUSION: When done properly (Mahavishnu Orchestra, Return To Forever) it had astonishing results. Not so say there weren't albums that sucked like every other genre. It always boils down to having compelling material in the compositions; it should never sound like exercises stapled together and sold as music.

I have witnessed both.

Thumbs up Re: Jeff Beck Blow By Blow on SACD - Glorified Porn Music or GENIUS?

I don`t get the purple pants reference, but I did not know Jeff beck until, Blow by Blow. A very good record, I thought back in the day.

As far as jazz/fusion goes, what I listened to was excellent. Miles Davis with the Bitches Brew classic LP, started it off. Then, there was Billy Cobham, Lenny White, Stanley Clarke, Al Dimeola, Jean Luc Ponty (one of my favorites, wish he was on SACD/DVD - A, or AIX!!!), Return to Forever, Mahavishnu with John McLaughlin, David Sancious, Wendell Irvine, and of course Weather Report, the late Jaco Pastorious, and Herbie Han****. And, others of course.
Great classic material probably never to be heard again. Its this material that needs to be reproduced on high rez music.

Amen to Jean-Luc Ponty! 5.1 DVD-A would be awesome!!!!! I've seen Weaether Report in hi-rez! Great fusion rocks. Jeff Beck is one of my all time fave's, but I think Blow By Blow su..well, it's not my cup of tea. I much prefer Wired, and There and Back.
