Robert Musso: Innermedium
For jazz-fusion fans to come out of the closet it is going to take more releases like this one from Robert Musso. The guitarist, music engineer, and label owner (MuWorks) creates a new old-sound, reminiscent of that seventies scene. With Bill Laswell applying the bottom, I was transported to memories of Jean-Luc Ponty, Weather Report, and Roy Ayers. Bernie Worrell’s organ and electric piano support smart quick solos by Dave Liebman and Byard Lancaster. Dipping into Herbie Hancock’s bag and that of Joe Zawinul and Wayne Shorter, Musso has created a time capsule or perhaps a time machine, to the mid-seventies when all this was fresh and had infinite possibilities.
