I have been reading Perry Robinson's new autobiography The Traveler, he's an interesting guy - musician (solo and also with luminaries like Dave Brubeck, William Parker and Henry Grimes) as well as an occasional magician and numerologist!
In a recent concert trade I picked up a wonderful two disc concert by the Santana/Shorter Band from the 1988 North Sea Jazz Festival. If you enjoy fusion, it's definitely worth your while to try to track down some of this music. Hal Miller used to say that people were working on some of this material for official release, let's hope so because it's great stuff.
