The Mahavishnu Orchestra's second album, Birds Of Fire, was equally instrumental in building the popularity of fusion, but along the way it went gold and rode the Billboard charts for 11 weeks. 28 years later, this milestone has resurfaced in 20-bit digitally remastered glory, ready to inspire a new crop of aspiring guitar masters worldwide. An undeniable classic made all the better by modern sonic cleansing. Personnel: John McLaughlin: guitars; Billy Cobham: drums; Jerry Goodman: violin; Jan Hammer: keyboards; Rick Laird: bass.
The album begins by mesmerizing the listener immediately. The title track and album opener starts with a gong crash, giving an epic feel about the album within 2 seconds. The gong crashes get louder and a guitar melody fades in. The electric guitar is somewhat fuzzy and picked with a tremolo style. Birds of Fire shows the apex of Mahavishnu's abilities in their short yet illustrious run in the jazz fusion world. The Mahavishnu Orchestra is criminally unheard of these days and serve as inspiration for those interested in rock and jazz.
