Patrick Burnette
Two very different fusion albums from the seventies - and two from the twenty-teens - are the focus of this fortnight's fandangle.
Show Notes

Not all fusion is hyper - some can be pretty chill.  Take Peter Erskine's "Dr. Um" band - or Phillip Upchurch's gang of studio cats.  This episode looks back at two slices of fusion from the seventies than fast-forwards to now, asking if the genre has to keep its feet planted firmly in the seventies or not.  Be careful - if you listen past the tag, Paul Lynde and Kiss will be discussed, like it or not.  Kenner - 8BALL CITY;  Phillip Upchurch – DARKNESS, DARKNESS; Dr. Um Band – ON CALL, Disc II; Eddie Henderson – SUNBURST.
