    I remember spinning that "Madhouse 8" album on the air when it came out; you're right, if memory serves, there was some good instrumental/jazz-funk on it.

    I remember thinking it was interesting to hear Prince's production approach sans vocals; the backbeat on those songs is BIG.

    At the time the Purple One passed, we had a lively discussion of his fusion recordings, including a CB post of Prince playing Stratus (Cobham tune).

    Anyone interested in Madhouse (or the Family), both fusion-funk from Prince, check this thread out for full albums to clic on & play...back on post May 6, 2016. Madhouse albums 8 and 16 in full length are still up, and weren't yanked so far (youtube vids on this thread).

    Also lotsa detail and history on Madhouse here April 24 & 30 and May 6 & 8 of 2016. You can get right there "searching" (box field) this "thread" for Madhouse !

    Cool to see Madhouse fans here !

    Unfortunately, I can't answer you back with an appropriate witticism, because "Ooo! Ooo!" is the only Tudy quote I can remember.

    It is a great record. I like the approach to bass (Jan Hammer, a la organ trios, but with synth), and the compositions are unique and well-played.

    Somehow I missed this one when it came out back in '84, and I was already digging Abercrombie, Scoffield, and Frisell...

    Love Bruford! The first time I saw Bill was on the "Larks Tongues in Aspic" tour in Chicago in '73. Mind blown!

    UZEB - UBEZ " You Be Easy" is another great UZEB album. Saw them live several times they are monster players especially Alain Caron. Paul Brochu has played with a lot of top players including Gino Vanelli.

    I saw Bill at clinics twice here in Toronto also with Anderson Bruford Wakeman and Howe, with King Crimson and met him and had a good chat at the El Mocambo in Toronto when he played with Patrick Moraz > Music for Drums & Piano.

    Love Bruford. Sad that he retired, but he deserves to enjoy some rest in his legacy.

    I interviewed him pretty extensively prior to the "Three of a Perfect Pair" tour. Then I saw them in Toronto. Great show.

    I would have loved to see them as a duo! I have both albums. Tell us any remembrances you have about the show!

    Great to see more UZEB fans ! So cool you saw them live.

    Enormous Gino fan here, along with a bunch of friends deeply into music. Vannelli actually started as a drummer, has had some of the greatest stixmen in his band, and his genre defies categorization. It is superb songwriting fusion of rock-jazz-classical-pop-synth & song styling. Most know 1 radio song which financially secured him, yet his very best works remain with fans. He has free licensure reign in the studio (like Sinatra & very few others had). With his 2 brothers the compositions are complicated & unique, I posted some (War Suite, Storm at Sunup, etc) here on thread. Herb Alpert (A &M) gave him his 1st break, then years later Clive Davis tried to hamper GV's career, but his talent overcame & still performs worldwide but not often. Recent band is also killer.

    Gino not only sang for the Pope, but has also sang opera on albums & live with the world's opera greats together. A close friend I worked with for 6 years in bands (has his music PhD, 8 Grammy nominations in jazz, was past pres of Combs College of Music, played on 2000+ recordings, writes symphonies & played with many of the jazz greats now all of age, etc) has said...Gino does the most with vocal skills than any one else currently singing. It was his response when we discussed the greatest singers (all genres), their technical abilities, presentation, soul & emotion.

    How GV progresses thru chest tones up into falsetto is the finest I've heard; smooth, flawless, powerful and with a full bodied tone. Seamless, coherently integrated and without separation. The 1st 2 minutes of "Storm at Sunup" exhibit that with such great ease, which then moves into some blistering pure jazz from his great band. Plus, Boston Celtics fans dig him too ! (long story from GV on soul train tv show). Gist of the Gemini & Storm at Sunup my fave GV lp's.

    Yes, fusion can have vocals & fine instrumentation to match. Here again -

    Storm at Sunup (...described vocal intro, then breaks into blistering pure jazz & reprise)


    The War Suite (dramatic & epic)
