Very soon after I put together the first CoverCast, I decided to pull out some of my favorite records and stay up until 5 AM to create an epic 45 minute long mix of loud, soul-churning jazz-fusion. This is the end product. The plan was to make a non-stop blend of heavy jazz-rock, like tracks two through five. But I decided to spread it out a bit, eventually splitting the mix into movements (ala the epic fusion suites of yore) with appropriately epic titles (I’ve never heard the word “PEREGRINATION” before). Fusion was a staple of my music diet in high school and on, so I hope you enjoy it. I know I did… Click the link or covers to downloat the zip file, which includes the tracklist.
