Hello gmc!

I'm trying to find some new fusion bands, but I have no idea where to start. I basically only listen to The Mahavishnu Orchestra and Caisopea, but apart from that I don't know any fusion bands basically.

To be honest, what I'm really looking for is bands with solos that are similar to this and this. I'm hopeless yes, but any recommendations will be deeply appreciated.

You could check out some Greg Howe stuff.

If you just want to listen a little to fusion stuff I highly recommend to look for Tom Quayle on YouTube, I just love his playing as it sounds new and refreshing smile.gif

Wow, why didn't I think of Greg Howe, he's amazing. Thanks. I'll look up Tom Quayle, but I'm not a huge fan of listening to stuff on youtube, but if it's good I guess it's worth the sacrifice laugh.gif

If you like a heavier edge to your fusion I highly recommend Hectic Watermelon

A few possibilities:

Alan Holdsworth and IOU (or Alan Holdsworth solo, or with UK), Steps Ahead (more like Casiopia) and/or Michael Brecker, Bill Brufford, Dixie Dregs, Mike Stern, Alex Machacek, Alesandro Benvenuti, Bill Conners (sax player rather than guitar player for fusion) , Crusaders, Jean Luc Ponty, later Miles Davis, Frank Zappa - especially when Vai was tabbing.
