Larry Coryell - electric guitar
Victor Bailey - electric bass
Lenny White - drums
On ELECTRIC, Coryell and friends have an all-out blast working their way through a track listing of rock and blues tunes, bending and stretching covers of well-known cuts popularised by Led Zeppelin (Black Dog), Sly and the Family Stone (Sex Machine), as well as Miles Davis' So What (from his seminal KIND OF BLUE album) and Wayne Shorter's Footprints into a rockin' musical adventure. We tried to straddle the lines between 'jazz', 'rock', 'funk' and 'fusion' and whatever other names people want to put on music, comments Bailey.
The trio members were particularly impressed with the minimal editing Chesky did to produce the sizzling live sound of the album. Today few recordings are done this way, says White, let alone being captured with one mike which made it all the more special. Producer David Chesky says, This is a new venture for all of the players and a new sound for Chesky.
The amazing dynamics of this uncompressed recording puts you in a front row seat for a blistering performance of jazz, blues and rock anthems by one of the world's greatest electric power trios. Play this record loud and you won't believe how good your system sounds.
