A drummer friend recently discovered the beauty of fusion jazz, so I lent him some old vinyl I have: Weather Report, Return to Forever, etc.
I haven't had a record player for years, so now I may have to go out and buy some of those favorites. He was particularly excited about Weather Report's "Black Market" -- if you haven't heard it, or forgotten it, check it out. It's full of unique and magical rhythms.
Return to Forever's "Romantic Warrior" was another of our favorites -- it's another classic.
