Learning about new tunes Part 10

Just as the Yes album “Fragile” rocked my world from a progressive rock standpoint, my intro to Return To Forever’s “Romantic Warrior” stunned me and awakened me to a whole new world of music when it came to jazz-fusion.

In that album, you had four masters of their craft:  Chick Corea on keyboards; Stanley Clarke on bass; Al DiMeola on blistering guitar; and Lenny White giving his signature beats on drums.

I’ve already included a link to a review I wrote years ago on the music discussion website www.progressiveears.com … well, why not just check out the tunes yourself?

About A View From The Middle (Class)

Hi, my name's John. I've thought about this blogging stuff for a number of years now. I got into it for real on November 10, 2011, after suddenly losing my job in late October that year. I've been blogging ever since, and I kept it up on a daily basis over a period of a year and four months of being unemployed or under-employed, to try and paint a picture of what being jobless with a family to support can be like. Finally, on February 28, 2013, I got a better job that put us back into the "middle class." But then that job went away, and I took a job as a transit bus driver that put us more in a lower income bracket. Now, I want to blog again on a more regular basis to tell of the kinds of struggles people like us go through as we work toward something better. Who knows, maybe I can actually turn this blogging stuff into a way to earn a living someday! If you go to my blog at https://viewfrommiddleclass.wordpress.com/ and click on my About page, it'll tell you a lot about me -- maybe more than you ever wanted to know. I'm just your average, laid-back guy who's GOING TO MAKE IT IN THIS WORLD, despite all the roadblocks thrown in the way. I also launched a "niche" blog on music at http://thecrossovermusicchannel.blogspot.com/ that I'm very excited about because of the popularity of music playlist articles here. Also, check out and "Like" this blog's Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/daddysangbassdude2 for instant updates. Look forward to seeing y'all around!

    killer stuff for sure but imo not their best. that would be “where have i known you before” with “vulcan worlds” and “song to the pharoah kings”.

    • Thanks for commenting here Yogi, love to see some more discussions get started here! I think it’s true that what’s used as an introduction for many people is often what stands out in their minds most as their best. I’ve seen that a lot through the years, including on progressiveears.com.
