Rick Calic and the rest of you jazz-rock fusion afficianados will need to check out 23 year old bassist Hadrien Feraud's new disc on Dreyfus. He has been playing with John McLaughlin recently - I believe this is his first as a leader.  Most of the compositions are by Hadrien and brother(?) Gerard.  There is the ususal high-level of technical proficiency and energy expected on a good fusion outing, and some nice compositions as well, with some interesting world influences.  John McLaughlin and Bireli Lagrene lend a hand with some of the guitar work. The comparisons to Weather Report and Jaco will obviously be made.  One of the best jazz-rock fusion releases that I've heard in a long time.
