DJ Michael Ealey said I would like The Fusion Syndicate CD. Listening to the first two tunes “Random Acts of Science” and “Stone Cold Infusion” had me a little suspect about this CD. It did not have enough jazz for my liking. The guitar playing was too over powering. It sounded more like, rock musicians trying to play jazz. It seem to me they were just jamming. There is no cohesiveness between the players. As I continued listening to this CD I started to like it more. Specially the tunes “In The Spirit Of...” and “Molecular Breakdown” the sax work is great. The tune “At The Edge Of The Middle” was another tune that had all the musicians feeding off of each other. That is what I like to hear when I’m listening to Jazz fusion. This CD is real live musicians doing what they do best. Some of the featured musicians on this CD are Rick Wakeman, Billy Sherwood, Billy Cobham, Steve Morse and a host of others. Well, over all “The Fusion Syndicate” CD gets 4 out of 5 stars, because this CD is real music not all that synthesized crap. You can listen to songs from “The Fusion Syndicate” on Streetwise Radio. You can also listen to Streetwise Radio on iTunes, Live365, MyGen365 and Athena365.
