Indeed. The late lamented Tommy Bolin died tragically after opening for Jeff Beck in Miami, Dec 1976. Had he lived and gotten his act together, I think Tommy would have been like Beck, an eclectic genius. So sad.

Both Warren Haynes and Prince have tackled "Stratus" also. It is like fusion's own "Goin Down" in terms of many folks tackling it live.

Here is a treat - another great song on Billy Cobham's "Spectrum" album is the song "Red Baron," and Derek got the chance to tackle it with Oteil and Kofi and friends:

Bolin one of my ALL-TIME faves....I was fortunate enough to see him in September of '76.

Dovetail, spill the beans please! I'd love to hear more about that show.

I'm 52. I didn't hear any of his stuff until 1983, way too late. I got instantly hooked and have been obsessed ever since.

Derek has joined Mule live on Stratus and during the last minute or so of Stratus they riff into Red Baron. Very nice indeed!

Also, it was back in 2003, I was hanging with Todd Smallie when the DTB was still together. That day they played Red Baron during their soundcheck.

It's also covered on a long ago tv show on BET, can't recall the name of the show, jazz musicians getting together in the studio, working out playing a song and then performing the finished project. Derek & Kofi were involved on that. I need to dig out the dvd!

(Found it. The program was Studio Jams, Derek & Kofi were on several episodes. The one with Red Baron also includes Oteil, Yonrico Scott, Vernon Reid and Jeff Coffin. Viewable on YouTube?)

Lucked into seeing Tommy while he was in The James Gang. The draw was the headliner, Johnny Winter, but the James Gang was one of the opening bands that night.

In the same vein, but more on the rock side is Return to Forever. Jazz fusion at it's best.
