The radio interview was very insightful. One gem of interest was that he was invited to join Weather Report at its inception by co-founder bassist Miroslav Vitous, but turned down the offer as he was forming Mahavishu Orchestra. Weather Report is favorite non-guitar-centric groups. I think you can get feel for they would sound with a guitarist from their tune The Moors from I Sing the Body Electric album, their second, featuring Ralph Towner.
Speaking of Weather Report, my next selection is from another founding member legendary saxophonist, Wayne Shorter. Wayne Shorter - Emanon is his latest release by 85 tear old recent Kennedy Center Honors recipient . Emanon is multimedia concept project with 3 CDs and 84 page science fiction graphic novel, illustrated by Randy DuBurke. I'm not familiar with the artist. The music is as adventurist as his early solo. Amazing.
For now, enjoy the coming New Year.
