Balawan: Jazz Fusion WOW!

Wow!  I have never heard anything like this before…there are a lot of great musicians in this world of ours, and when I see something like this I ask myself “Why even continue?!” and think it’s time to hang it up…the bass player is slappin’ all over the place and guitar player not only master’s the traditional plectrum technique, but also shows his mastery over the two-handed technique ala Stanley Jordan… if you have 5 minutes to kill and like jazz-fusion, this is worth a watch and listen…Have a wonderful day!
