Mahavishnu Orchestra Violin Legend JERRY GOODMAN Releases A Brand New Collection Of New And Rare Recordings!

Los Angeles, CA – Jerry Goodman is simply one of the most unique and explosive talents the rock world has ever seen: a violin player trained in classical music with an ear for jazz and the attitude and looks of a true rock n’ roller! Known for his work with Chicago-based prog fusion band The Flock and John McLaughlin’s Mahavishnu Orchestra as well as studio sessions with everyone from Hall & Oats to Styx, Goodman deftly combined his influences into a vibrant musical vision all his own. Now, Goodman is set to release a thrilling new collection, the first to appear under his own name since 1988, called Violin Fantasy and scheduled to street July 1 courtesy of Purple Pyramid Records! This incredible album includes 2 never before heard instrumentals, “In The Realm Of The Netherworld” and the title track, “Violin Fantasy,” as well as brilliant cover versions of classic rock staples such as “Enter Sandman,” “Don’t Stop Believin’,” “Eye Of The Tiger,” “The Final Countdown” and many more! Also included are selections from the star-studded Fusion Syndicate project featuring keyboardist Rick Wakeman and the equally big-named Prog Collective featuring King Crimson bassist Tony Levin and Yes’s Billy Sherwood. This one-of-a-kind collection is sure to please longtime fans of this gifted instrumentalist and will stand as a testament to Goodman’s hugely influential musical legacy.

Audio Fidelity To Release Mahavishnu Orchestra’s “Birds Of Fire” On Limited Edition 4.0 Quad SACD

“…sets out to further define and refine its blistering jazz-rock direction.”

Camarillo, CA – Marshall Blonstein’s Audio Fidelity is releasing the classic fusion album Birds of Fire by the Mahavishnu Orchestra as a limited edition Hybrid 4.0 Quad SACD. Birds of Fire is Mahavishnu Orchestra’s second album. It was released in the first half of 1973 and is the last studio album released by the original Mahavishnu Orchestra line-up before the group dissolved. The album became a major crossover hit, rising to number 15 on the pop album charts, and it remains the key item in the slim discography of the first Mahavishnu Orchestra.

Although it has much of the screaming rock energy of the band’s first album, Inner Mounting Flame, Birds of Fire is audibly more varied in texture, even more tightly organized, and more musical in content. A remarkable example of precisely choreographed, high-speed solo trading – with John McLaughlin, Jerry Goodman, and Jan Hammer all of one mind, supported by Billy Cobham’s machine-gun drumming and Rick Laird’s dancing bass.

Birds of Fire consists solely of compositions by John McLaughlin. This includes the track “Miles Beyond (Miles Davis)”, which McLaughlin dedicated to his friend and former bandleader. The SACD booklet features a poem entitled “Revelation” by Sri Chinmoy.

1. BIRDS OF FIRE
2. MILES BEYOND (Miles Davis)
3. CELESTIAL TERRESTRIAL COMMUTERS
4. SAPPHIRE BULLETS OF PURE LOVE
5. THOUSAND ISLAND PARK
6. HOPE
7. ONE WORD
8. SANCTUARY
9. OPEN COUNTRY JOY
10. RESOLUTION
