How can you play and re arrange a song composed by John Mclaughlin at the height of its success with Mahavishnu orchestra. The answer is "You can't". This Cd has greatest guitarists and music men, but my suggestion for you is to get their own compositions. If you wanna listen to Fusion of Indian, eclectic Rockish and never before Harmonized Jazzy songs, go buy all the cd's of Mahavishnu Orchestra.

A fusion "tribute" treat 10 Oct. 2005
By 4tunes500 - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I am an old time Mahavishnu fan who has been going back down memory lane and rediscovering the band. Being a purist I NEVER buy tribute albums. I find them unnecessary & unworthy. I stumbled across the listing for this when I was buying the remastered version of Visions of Emeralds Beyond and after seeing that it contained some of my all time favorite players I decided to give it a shot. I'm so glad I did! I can't stop playing it.

What makes this tribute different? How about the inclusion of orginal band members to back up the guest guitarists! The contributions of the much underrated Mitchel Forman on Keys and the superb Jerry Goodman (often covering what was Ponty material)on violin are outstanding.

What are the highlights...nearly too many to list: Steve Lukather (Toto)shines on "Birds of Fire'. The Mike Stern (Miles Davis & solo work)and Jerry goodman interplay on "can't Stand Your funk" is exceptional. I bought this in part because I am addicted to the Dixie Dregs but found Steve Morse playing a little too clean. (Most of the other players expanded beyond the Mahavishnu parameters but sadly not Morse). Jimmy Herring (Aquarium Rescue Unit & the Other Ones) strikes a nerve on "Meeting of the Spirits". "Jazz" is a nice unexpected inclusion from '84. Frank Gambale's (Vital Information) cover of "Dawn" again with Goodman is lively and memorable. As much as I admire Warren Haynes (Govt Mule/Allman Brothers) I was skeptical of how he might come across on a fusion LP; in truth "Lila's Dance" may be the best cut on the CD. The final wind down comes with John Abercrombie bringing us back to Earth with "Follow your heart" The whole cd is a solid pleasant surprise. If your an old fan give it a try. If you are a new fan listen to this first and then compare it to the original material; you'll be opening the doors to some great fusion.

one more tribute 1 Aug. 2005
By J. Huffine - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you're a hardcore M.O. fan (and a sucker like me), you've bought every tribute band, album, and inmitator that's come down the pike over the last 20+ years. But let's face it, they've all disappointed. No one's matched the in-your-face power and virtuosity of the original M.O. No exception here, although I'd put this tribute towards the top of the heap. The tunes have been arranged to suit the individual guitarists style...and there's some kick-ass good music here, no question. Just don't expect your mind to get blown like it's 1973 and any fusion fan should enjoy this.

Mahavishnu Orchestra is a Tough Act to Cover 5 Jun. 2006
By R. Troll - Published on
Format: Audio CD
As a Maha fanatic I really wanted to love this CD, but outside of John Abercrombie's take on Follow our Heart, nothing takes flight. Problematic are the arrangements that pay little respect to the original compositions and a rhythm section that plods along with none of the forward leaning urgency and intensity of the original Mahavishnu Orchestra. As far as tributes go, The Mahavishnu Project does a much better job of honoring both the spirit and the musical innovations of the Mahavishnu Orchestra.

A Worthwhile Tribute CD 2 Sept. 2005
By Mark Twain - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Too bad that superior listening formats SACD & DVD Audio have not permeated the release market; this multi-layered concept album is begging for 5.1 playback.

That having been said, there are moments on this guest guitarists' (alongside the house band) CD to justify its purchase. In particular, Mike Stern's: Can't Stand Your Funk...Meaning Of The Spirits featuring Jimmy Herring and some mellow Frank Gambale on Dawn.

I would say Visions can be placed alongside Greg Bendian's Mahavishnu Project (Live!) on your shelf.

Nothing captures the original MO 9 Nov. 2005
By K. Kirkland - Published on
Format: Audio CD
because of their ensemble interaction, full force tempos and jagged solos. This tribute is fun to listen to...all these guitarists are phenomonal players but many of the takes are lock stock and barrel rock solos, slow tempos, or corny arrangements. The highlights are the tunes with Jerry Goodman- an original MO member. He cuts through the music like a knife because its his territory. Especially "Dawn" with Frank Gambale... in Lilas Dance he shines again. Cant stand your funk goes on too long with Stern. Another stand outs are Steve Morse on Cellestial commuters. For the MO fan its a must but makes you appreciate

the original gang.
