His commercial stuff was well done too but I found it sterile in that typical 80s pop way.
74-79 he was all about Jazz Rock and pulling impossible changes with great feel.

Like all of us, he went throught phases, staring out with Buddy Rich, moving on to John Bonham, but when I first got to know him in the late 70's, he was still heavily into Billy Cobham, Tony Williams and the percussionist Airto Moreira.

It shows, and those (well recorded!) Brand X albums capture those days in all their glory.

Marscape is indeed another fine example from that mid 70's period.
