CD reissue. 1974, Electric Lady Studios, New York City; 'The Greatest Suite Fusion In History'! Creative, jazz-influenced music with a rock or funk electronic format. Stanley Clarke's first fusion album. With keyboarder Jan Hammer at his creative peak and the late, great Tony Williams's volcanic drumming. A piece of music where the musicians trade off each other on a funky, walking pace that builds to near hysteria. 'Spanish Phrases For Bass And Strings' airs Stanley's classical side with furious flamenco phrases from the maestro Bill Connors as the strings paint vivid images of an ancient history. Stanley's 6-minute solo in the final section of the 'Life Suite' is a sheer masterpiece of tone and dynamic construction. A landmark in the history of jazz-fusion!
