Journey To Love,
This review is from: Journey To Love (Audio CD)
Certainly a fantastic buy if you like your Jazz-Fusion. This album is a great mix of different tracks slow and fast, rocky and jazzy, including performances with Jeff Beck (Hello Jeff) and George Duke (Journey To Forever) and never fails to disappoint. The album opens well, going through jerky trumpet bursts and slappy basslines typical of Stanley Clarke, to slow melodies, guitar-infused funk-rock and then into the Concerto pieces at the end, exploring more traditional double-bass Jazz styles intercut with more familiar Fusion and Rock parts in between.
While definitely more downtempo in parts than the dance-a-thon that is School Days, Stanley Clarke's "Journey to Forever" doesn't disappoint across the board. Well worth a listen.
