In more than a few jazz encyclopedia’s “Spaces” is listed as on of the greatest fusion albums ever made, which is simply wrong. Some reviewers simply haven’t listened to the album in question. What you’ll hear on this album is a straight ahead set of sessions of jazz improvisations where the two creaters of jazz-rock style, Coryell and John McLaughlin, leave volume and feedback behind. A beautifully realized album all around, from Coltranesque postbop on “Renee’s Theme” to Coryell’s impressionistic “Wrong is Right”; Coryell is the hard charger here, fleet, angular, filling in spaces with flurries of intricate note clusters, while McLaughlin is into spaces, silences, short fines, wonderful bits of filigree. Bassist Miroslov Vitous is terriic, and drummer Cobham works miracles throughout this wonderful wash of music.
