Check out Medeski, Martin, and Wood.


They are my current favorite jazz group. Hopefully, I'm going to see them later this month.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

I'm also gonna go with Return To Forever. Hopefully they are what you are looking for. They are amazing.
The moment I saw you I knew I had found again the singer of a thousand songs that haunted every dream. The painter of the colors of my mind, reminding me of places we had been - Where have I known you before // RETURN TO FOREVER

Immolation? Spawn of Possession? Gorguts?Hehe. Well they have some jazzy riffs.

Could anyone suggest fusion bands more in the style of Shawn Lane or Allan Holdsworth? I'm getting into fusion lately but since I'm transitioning from shred and progressive music they just sound a bit better to my ear at the moment.
