So, you miss the prime days of Jerry Goodman and Jean Luc Ponty? The fiddle and the cosmic in the title might be giveaways, but you do need the proof in the pudding to proceed. Tixier brings such solid proof that Stabler and Benson couldn’t shake his story. A return to the golden days of fusion when the players would make killer music not worrying about it being a hit and letting the audience follow along, Tixier starts there and charts a new course from there out. Surrounded by like minded young players that know the way as well, this is killer stuff from start to finish that sounds like all the great fusion fiddle records before commercial concerns came to bear. A winner throughout.
