Passport - Infinity Machine (1976)
EAC Rip | APE: Image+Cue+Log | 207 Mb | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 93 Mb | Scans | Time: 38:25
Genre: Jazz Rock, Fusion | Label: Atlantic/WEA Musik GmbH | Cat.№: 2292-44146-2

Infinity Machine, another impressive collection, adds a spiritual touch to the proceedings (Blue Aura, Ostinato Contemplation), while the tight playing and the lyrical production keep the music beyond the standards of jazz-rock (Morning Sun). At the same time, the longest jam, Ju Ju Man, shows an even stronger funk element.

7 for 4 - Diffusion (2008)
EAC Rip | FLAC: Tracks+Cue+Log | 359 Mb | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 129 Mb | Scans | 76 Mb | Time: 52:38
Genre: Progressive Rock, Jazz Rock, Fusion | Label: MGI Records | Cat.№: MGR 1023

7 for 4's new album starts with Diffusion, which introduces us with a mellow jazzy guitar line. 7 For 4 didn't change their recipe: as with the previous albums, it soon changes for a rock-metal style which could remind me of the band Royal Hunt without lyrics. It's always cut by jazzy lines on bass and guitar, hard to hate, really. It's followed by Indigo Dunes, where the keyboards have a sound similar to the ones used by Liquid Tension Experiment, and a similar use too. In Overall, this track has a slower tempo than most of what 7 for 4 gave us by the past, but it's nonetheless really interesting, especially when considering the basslines taking their places in there. A really balanced piece, one of the best on the CD in my opinion.

Tohpati - Tribal Dance (2014)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 42:52 min | 101 MB
Genre: World Fusion, Jazz-Rock | Label: Moonjune Records

With Tohpati's 3rd release (2nd as a trio) on MoonJune, recorded in Los Angeles in September 2013, we see the Beckian progressive metal riffing of 2012's Tohpati Bertiga Riot supplanted by a pairing of compositional dexterity along with the unique guitar voice that is the essence of Tohpati, one of Indonesia's most famous guitar players. Though there is no shortage of acrobatic axe-wielding on Tribal Dance, Tohpati's democratic interplay with the formidable world class rhythm section of Jimmy Haslip and Chad Wackerman is the real star here - creating a powerful synergy that gives voice to the whole of the music over its parts and delivering a richly rewarding listening experience.

Dominic Miller - Ad Hoc (2014) {Q-Rious}
EAC 1.0b3 | FLAC Image level 8 | Cue+Log | Full Scans 600dpi | 305MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Jazz, Fusion, New Age

'Ad Hoc' is the new album by Sting s long time collaborator and guitarist Dominic Miller. A musician that Sting has long called his right and left hand. The album is recorded in Germany and featuring special guest the inspirational Eda Zari, is Dominic Miller s most impressive work to date. Zari's contribution to the anthemic Exiting Purgatory is a perfect compliment to the searing cello solos by Sweden's Lars Daniellson and forms the climax sound to an album whose textures and ambiences are as eclectic as Miller's life itself.

Trioscapes - Digital Dream Sequence (2014)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 42:00 min | 101 MB
Genre: Jazz, Progressive Rock, Fusion | Label: Metal Blade Records

Music that lies at the intersection of jazz and metal has always interested me. The first Trioscapes album that came out not long ago in 2012, called Separate Realities, certainly scratched that itch. What excited me the most about the record was that it certainly seemed like only the beginning of where they could go with their sound, if they followed their heads.

Jeff Lorber / Chuck Loeb / Everette Harp - Jazz Funk Soul (2014) {Shanachie}
EAC 1.0b3 | FLAC Image level 6 | Cue+Log | Full Scans 600dpi | 345MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Jazz, Funk, Soul

Although the title of the new recording from impromptu trio Jeff Lorber, Chuck Loeb and Everette Harp is ‘Jazz Funk Soul’, what it actually provides is top-notch jazz-fusion of the sort that aficionados had despaired of ever experiencing again. Make no mistake this is contemporary jazz of the highest order and certainly the most interesting release of the year so far. However, considering the pedigree of those involved this is hardly surprising.

Tom Scott - Them Changes (1990) {GRP}
EAC 0.99pb4 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 300dpi | 258MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Jazz-Funk, Fusion, Smooth Jazz

Purists who've followed Scott over the years may balk at such a commercial collection, but the music is as fun as the guys who are playing it, so who can argue? Scott wrote only two of the nine songs, and interestingly enough, "Desire" and "We Belong Together" are the least exciting tunes, thought they mellow out the pace a bit. Covers of the Average White Band's '74 hit "Pick up the Pieces," Buddy Miles' song as the energetic title cut, Earth, Wind & Fire's brassy "Serpentine Fire," and Coltrane's bluesy "Dahomey Dance" are party tunes all the way, and this band featuring L.A. clubbers Barnaby Finch, Pat Kelley, and Tim Landers help the expressive Scott bring the passionate funk to life.

Simon Phillips - Protocol II (2013) {Phantom Recordings}
EAC 1.0b3 | FLAC Image level 8 | Cue+Log | Full Scans 600dpi | 445MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Fusion, Jazz-Rock

Protocol II arrives fourteen years after drummer Simon Phillips' last leader date—the hard bop and post-bop based Vantage Point (Jazzline Records, 2000). And it comes approximately a quarter century after the original Protocol (Music for Nations, 1988)—a true solo date that had Phillips covering all the instruments, filling in the space around his calling-card drumming.
