Bristling, upbeat jazz fusion with splashes of Latin is the order of the day with Al Garcia's "Make It So." Garcia is an impeccable bassist and guitar player. Each track features his impressive skills. The bass particularly sounds great and on tracks like "The Unexpected Answer" it figures as a lead melodic presence. And while the recording itself has that "home produced" stamp, you can't deny the fluency of the music. This record will take you back on an interstellar journey to the glory days of Mahavishnu Orchestra, Jack Bruce, and Return to Forever
