    No-one mentioning Mahavishnu Orchestra, especially the first edition with Jan Hammer and Jerry Goodman?

    Post #2.

    BTW, there's a live Jan Hammer Group (download only) album from the mid '70s that was released a couple of years ago; pretty burnin' stuff!

    Formed in Moscow. Guitarist and bass players are Russian. But the drummer is French, now living in Los Angeles.

    Wow, must have been the first time I've "inspired" a thread! Since it's not actually my thread, I can't really define what is edgy and aggressive. But I will say why I used the description. In the Weather Report thread, I mentioned why I'm not into them. They are a band that had great musicians, the playing and the musicianship, I'd never argue it was anything but great. Just not a style I prefer with fusion, its a tad mello and mild to my ears. For 70's era, I much prefer Mahavishnu and Return to Forever, that sort of "rocking" fusion. I don't care for the early RTF albums as they don't emphasize the rock element much. But from "7th Galaxy" on out, maybe my ultimate fusion act. And today there are so many great acts doing this sort of thing. I mentioned Ohm and KBB off the top of my head.

    Other great ones have been mentioned, and here is my list, not in any order:

    Planet X
    Cab
    Vital Tech Tones
    Tribal Tech
    Hiromi
    Spaced Out
    Aristocrats
    Tunnels
    Brand X
    Uncle Moe's Space Ranch
    Bruford
    Electromagnets
    Gambale Hamm Smith (GHS)
    Gong (fusion era)
    Jean-Luc Ponty
    Niacin
    One Shot
    Ohmphrey
    Simon Phillips

    OK, I know I'm missing a bunch, and there are some I don't really call fusion, though they could be defined that way, like Kenso, the Dixie Dregs and Morglbl.

    If you can find it, Machacek - Featuring Ourselves ( abstract logix download only ) mentioned already, but once more for emphasis
    Conrad Schrenk - Save the Robots
    Scott McGill's Handfarm

    and even through there are vocals;

    Only if you subscribe to definition #2 in Post #5, otherwise it would be the other way around.

    Is this fusion? Is it edgy? I don't know, but it's certainly aggressive!

    Don't think this has been mentioned - Kazumi Watanabe's Spice of Life with Bruford and Berlin - phenomenal album. Unfortunately, Spice of Life Too isn't nearly as good to me, different lineup, just doesn't smoke like the first one.
    If I like it, it's good.
