your favorite Mike Stern CD and tune?

So, what's your favorite Mike Stern CD and/or tune? I'm looking for a nice, "modern"-sounding fusiony thang. I remember hearing "Lumpy" from 'Give and Take'(?) years ago and liking it a lot. Something along these lines. I'll consider that cd again.

 

By "modern-sounding" I mean "modern" in respect to the whole of jazz history, not necessarily 21st-century sounding. Although I'd love to hear who you guys think would be today's most influential fusion/jazz guitarists for the music of tomorrow.

 

Thanks.

His first one Upside Downside has Jaco on the whole thing. Need I say More?

 

Chromazone is on his second release. Pretty sick head

 

If your looking for some killer roots fusion, get wayne Krantz's Long to be loose

 

go to waynekrantz.com and listen to whippersnapper

 

Jimmy Herring and Project Z has some pretty sick stuff as well as his endangered species CD

 

They are my two favorite catz because as outside and technical as they get, they still can play the blues

Thanks for the suggestions....

 

Yeah, I want these for my listening, pleasure, for getting more acquainted w/ the genre, and for learning a couple exciting tunes (not necessarily the solos ;) ).

 

I think Chromazone is in fake/real books, right? I'll check it out. "Lumpy" is one I want to learn, but I don't even remember how it goes.

Hey man, what exactly is 'roots fusion'? I'm actually looking for lyrical solos minor seconds and ninths put in the right places and huge intervals and 'out there' scales, sick licks, "complex" harmonies, and unexpected twists and turns, etc... Not eactly sure where 'roots fusion' fall into this. However your last paragraph tells me I should check it out.

 

I'll check those guys out later on tonight! Thanks for the suggestions!

The Jigsaw album has some good compositional explorations more so than the soloing

 

While the Standards album is him just straight rippin' through the changes

 

I like the rhythm section grooves with Will Lee and dennis chambers and Ben Peroski on the 1994 album (forgot name)
