Live at the Jazz Workshop
Amazingly, Larry Coryell's Eleventh House were somewhat overshadowed in their time by fusion counterparts such as Weather Report, Return to Forever, and The Mahavishnu Orchestra. However, the dynamics and interaction on display here feature not only beautifully intricate work, but ingenious melodic scales befitting musicians of the highest technical ability. While 1975's Level One never commercially achieved the classic status of its predecessor (Introducing the Eleventh House with Larry Coryell), it is an excellent follow-up piece that captures the band at their creative and technical peak, a peak that would spill onto the stage at Boston's Jazz Workshop where the band delivered a milestone performance in jazz-rock fusion that truly deserves wider recognition. This is the entire FM broadcast of the Eleventh House's performance at the Jazz Workshop, Boston, MA, on July 31, 1975. Professionally remastered; includes background liners and rare archival photographs.
