MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA


"The Inner Mounting Flame's ascending and descending distortion-laden mantra-like riffs and unison playing set a standard for jazz-rock that is still in place today. It's Indian influences merged with blues scales and rock rawness set the music world on fire. The musical attack was relentless. (...) Melodies and rhythms like had never been heard before. The distortion and the loudness could be insulting, and the speed of the playing was mind-numbing. In short, this was the greatest jazz-fusion recording ever made."
