[JPL] Al Di Meola/Fusion

You're the man Jae!  I love that recording!  I also like the composition 
"Song To The Pharoah Kings" from "Where Have I Known You Before."  Those 
extended compositions of Chick Corea's really lit up my imagination during 
the seventies and still sound as fresh today as they did when they first 
came out.  Some people call them corny but, to each his own.  It was a very 
imaginative and exploratory time for music and genre blending.

Aloha,

Bobby Jackson
