O’s Notes: RMS is Ray Russell (g), Mo Foster (b) and Simon Phillips (d). Gil Evans (p) is the featured guest artist. While we anticipated more focus on Gil Evans, the core figure of this performance is guitarist Ray Russell. This is not a bad thing as Ray leads the solos in a full-featured fusion concert from 1983 at Montreux. There are also brief but notable appearances from Mark Isham (t, keys), Henry Lowther (t), Malcolm Griffiths (tb) and Ronnie Asprey (sax). It is a good performance with great video shots of performers.
