Jazz / Fusion / Keyboards

Barry Miles is a Fusion-Jazz keyboardist who has worked with many of the top fusion musicians, including Al Di Meola and Miles Davis. He has issued a handful of solo albums over the years. We now present Sky Train, originally released on RCA Records in 1977, for the first time on compact disc. It features Eric Kloss, Anthony Jackson and Randy Brecker. The album also features the 20 minute epic 'Cityscape (The Fusion Suite)'.
An album I just never get tired of since I first got it in 1977 (oh my! I'm old!). Incredible musicianship: this is one REALLY tight band. The album starts off at full tilt and alternates between extremely high energy and relaxing cuts, which, frankly, is necessary because I have a tendency not to breathe during music of this intensity. It's a full band, with keyboards, guitar, sax, drums, and a powerhouse brass section.

Oh yes, and putting on my audiophile jerk hat, this is a very good recording. The keyboards and guitar are real. The brass is powerful. There is plenty of tight, controlled bass. Etc. It's not a super high tech recording where the recording quality is more important than the music (oops! Jaded attitude alert), but it's certainly good enough. It can be enjoyed at proper volumes without harshness.

It's a great album. If you're a fusion fan, this should be in your collection, although it sets the bar very high. Somebody commented on the previous review that he saw this performed live: I cannot tell you how jealous I am!
