I guess it was a compilation-album, because after that I heard lighter fusion and funk, but hearing this heavy jazz-rock in a bar! Great.

    Yes there is such compilation, - at least I know one, which called simply 'The best of Billy Cobham". It starts with Quadrant 4, a mind-blowing opening track from Spectrum.

    Saw the Aristocrats with Travis Larson Monday night. I don't know if it's me or standing venues I lose interest in bands that don't have hooks, melodies or riffs. I can't stand there all night and watch bands play 10,000 nots a song and stay interested.

    A nice Cobham compilation is Rudiments: The Billy Cobham Anthology

    If I like it, it's good.

    Do you mean both bands, Ed? The Aristocrats do have riffs. Hooks and melodies, not so much. Terrific musicians in need of tunes. Hearing them live was exciting, but I can't listen to their albums. As for what little I've heard from Travis Larson, it sounded too much like The Steve Morse Band for me. I'd rather hear the real deal.

    Well, I don't think it was a compilation of Cobham, more a fusion-compilation with all kinds of different bands including Quadrant 4.
    Actually,I first bought "The Best Of Billy Cobham" (on LP), before I bought "Spectrum" on CD.

    yes, there should be. I like Collisions quite a bit.

    I dug out a few edgy ones I've been spinning lately plus a new one

    there's no YT videos for these guys but Triton was an awesome trio from Germany who released three good ones in the early 90's....Triton, Boomerang and Vivid Dreams.

    Tetsuo Sakurai released a couple of great fusion albums with Dennis Chambers and Greg Howe...Gentle Hearts and Vital World.

    and last but not least, a new French band called Draw Me A Sheep. their September 2015 debut Premier Pas is short but sweet

    3 Crows, Chris Buck's fusion band, is mentioned somewhere in this thread. He recently released his third album, called It's A Murder.... I would say it's a killer
    Featuring Brett Garsed and Marco Minnemann, plus on one track Andy Kodiwein.
    Here's one of the tracks, iSlave:

    Sounds decent.
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    I think the subtext is rapidly becoming text.

    Mohini Dey does some superb fusion work- combining Indian music with modern fusion.
