What a shame. Powerhouse jazz / fusion drummer claimed by cancer. He was right up there with Billy Cobham and Lenny White.

Saddened to hear this.

Mind Transplant, another release featuring the guitar mastery of Tommy Bolin.

I have some older video of Alphonse with Weather Report. Seems appropriate to dust that off.

There's great footage of Alphonse on YouTube - some with Jaco, some with McCoy Tyner, and plenty more.

The Alphonse Mouzon album "Mind Transplant" is so great. It's the sister album to Billy Cobham's "Spectrum" and Jeff Beck's "Wired." Remarkable drums, dazzling guitar, swirling chops paired with great groove and soul. The CD bonus track "The Real Thing" is such a great glimpse of what truly "on" jamming is all about.
