Echoes Playlist
They sound like a law firm and in certain ways they are arguing a case for fusion. Bay Area bassist Michael Manring, and guitarist Scott McGill and drummer Vic Stevens, both from Philadelphia, create a music born in the sound of the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Chick Corea and Miles Davis, a freewheeling brand of pyrotechnic compositions and free improvisations. Recently, they released their second CD as the trio, McGill-Manring-Stevens called CONTROLLED BY RADAR (Free Electric Sound). A double CD, one disc is electric and the other disc is acoustic. We gather these three virtuosi together to make their case in the Court of Echoes.
