Default Narada Michael Walden

I can't find any threads on NMW, which is weird because he plays with fantastic spirit and cooks like few others.

Here he's jamming with Jeff Beck http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgTeEHz46Xk

Recording of Eternity's Breath with Mahavishnu - one of the few players capable of seamlessly taking over from Billy Cobham http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ummV28JepgA

And my fave - tearing it up with Weather Report: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=quhbvB_5JyM

It's not really Weather Report, as Wayne Shorter is missing. This concert was called Narada Michael Walden & "Former Members of Weather Report", as far as I know, and I think it was produced for the Japanese TV only.

Michael Walden is a fine drummer & producer. He did many records under his own name, and there's a few fun and catchy Disco-Funk tunes. I saw him live with Mahavishnu Orchestra many years ago (this concert was released on DVD).

Love "Visions Of the Emerald Beyond" - he plays with such drive - I prefer this to any of the other more conceived sounding Mahavishnu albums
