    so I consider Zappa to be the king of fusion as in all his releases he certainly fused every style possible into them.
    How did you get to see it live man? It wasn't one concert! I'm fact it was a bunch of performances thrown together to make a studio album release!

    Not only... It was just a bunch of guitar solos culled from various performances from various years. Mostly it was live, but a few studio jam tracks were included, as well.

    Some people just get carried away.

    You could make the case for anyone being a jazz guitarist these days, unless they just play "Mustang Sally" in bars every night.
