    Phenomenal fusion guitarist who has been involved in the Zawinul Syndicate for a long time as well as doing his own thing in various configurations. I remember reading about him in one of Guitar Player magazine's Spotlight columns in the '80s.

    He is a serious badass with some very interesting lines and concepts! I hear he is also a great sitar player in the traditional Indian music forms, but I have not even begun to get into that yet. Also a great vocalist who did the ethereal voice at the beginning of Eric Johnson's Venus Isle.

    I saw him perform in concert in the early '90s, but on sitar and tabla. It was really good.

    I saw him with the Zawinul Syndicate in 2001. I was very impressed.

    I really like the vocals and percussion in the first cut combined with the streaming 16th notes on the guitar. Can anyone steer me to some other similar music?
