3 stars Top, Vander, Widemann and Lockwood - 4 great musicians gathered for an jazz fusion album - nothing special so far, but when you look at the pedegree of these 4 musicians then something is diffrent. I don't know if this album must be under Lockwood name or separately puted but the line up is like this: 3 musicians coming from zeuhl french legends Magma + the great violonist Didier Lockwwod who had many colaborations across the years with Gong, UZEB, ZAO or even Magma. The album issued in 1981 and named simply Fusion is a roller coster of the genre, some plenty of good moments here specially on Overdrive or 767 ZX, great musicianship, top notch performance but I think the album is little date it now, but not bad at all in the end. Some great breaks and up tempo passges that really set the album for a good mood, but a piece like nearly 25 min long GHK Go to Miles is a bit boring without memorable moments and goes even in avant prog/jazz teritory here and there. So, a forgotten album I must say who is good for sure, but nothing really is impressive overall, I know better albums from this genre who has far more intrsting in arrangements. My CD version from 1991 has a diffrent cover then the original issue and is released by french label JMS the property of Jean-Marie Salhani who is focused on jazz rock/fusion band and artists.
