Eddie Fisher and the Next One Hundred Years

A long road trip several week's back with all of the music programmed by my co-pilot introduced me to this gem: Eddie Fisher and the Next One Hundred Years

I have been struggling to aptly describe this record so went poking around online...here is what Muze has to say:
"Early 1970s jazz-funk, from a little-known guitarist who uses wah-wah pedal and post-psychedelic textures on an instrumental album that carries echoes of both early Funkadelic...and the Mahavishnu Orchestra's more pastoral moments...Eddie Fisher's fresh approach avoids both rock and jazz clich├ęs in a compelling, bluesy style that's augmented by period-sounding electric piano and linear, BITCHES BREW-era Miles Davis-style arrangements."


Right. Exactly! Ha.

Reminds me a bit of James Blood Ulmer in spots, too. Most of the record is just wah-ed out guitar and bass but the track posted here is the album's epic and includes some bad ass (seemingly electric) violin.
