The Mahavishnu Project: Phase 2

The Mahavishnu Project have just released the long awaited follow-up to their critically acclaimed premiere release Live Bootleg.

Recorded during the band’s 2003 tour, PHASE 2 contains two and a half hours of live material on two discs, vividly documenting the raw power of a band with a mission. PHASE 2 features fresh, visceral interpretations of tunes culled from The Mahavishnu Orchestra’s classic ‘70’s recordings – Birds of Fire, The Inner Mounting Flame and Visions of The Emerald Beyond.

“We decided to do another live disc because we realize that this music is all about the energy of live performance”, says drummer/founder Gregg Bendian. “And with any form of jazz, it’s in concert that the music comes to life. Each night, we strive to reach the next level of expression and execution. Mahavishnu music demands it, and I think PHASE 2 captures that energy.”
