Sunday's Music Muse Day post is a day late due to football playoffs, and a developing cold. But, the music help me feel better. The first two CDs were picked up in Toronto, Canada, during a lovely brief road trip with my wife. These fusion jazz gems are connected in a way. First up. Trio of Doom, the one time pairing of guitarist John McLaughlin, drummer Tony Williams, and bassist Jaco Pastorius recorded at the historic 1979 Havana Jam festival in Cuba. This CD contains all the material they record live, and in the studio shortly afterwards. McLaughlin actually didn't want the material released at first because of poor recording of the live tracks, but 27 year later he relented, mainly in honor of his friends, Tony and Jaco, who had since passed away. The music is rough and raw, but important considering stature of these musicians.
