Sunday Music Muse Day - Bill Conners and Meltdown Birth of Fusion

This week's Sunday Music Muse Day selections are rooted in the Jazz Fusion of the 1970s.  First up, guitarist  Bill Conners' Theme of the Gaurdian, which I own on vinyl LP and CD.

 Bill was the original guitarist for Chick Corea's Return to Forever, but Bill left after the first album and tour.  The picture of him on the back cover was probably from a RTF concert.  After leaving RTF, Bill Conners switched to acoustic guitar and released several solo efforts.  This being the first.  In the mid-80s Bill returned to the electric guitar with three CD's using a power trio, guitar, bass, drum, format.

Next up, today , is Meltdown - the Birth of Fusion, a nice sampling of well known 70's Jazz Fusion classics.

Truly  a good way to spend the afternoon.  Enjoy.
