Recorded in Holland, 1973

Outstanding live studio recording from electric violinist, Don ‘Sugarcane’ Harris. The accent here is on straight jazz/blues fusion and Harris’ elastic fiddling fits the bill. The band is Dewey Taylor (piano), Gunter Lenz (bass), Todd Canedy (drums) and pioneering European fusion guitarist, Volker Kriegel. Easily one of Sugarcane’s more appealing sets, recorded September 25-27, 1973. Zappa fans will hear some of the off-kilter blues style Harris briefly provided FZ in the late 60s. Listen to “Nesia,” below. There’s an unreleased Deluxe Edition of Sugar Cane’s Got The Blues in the archives. This one’s really obscure, and not even listed at the The All Music Guide or at Amazon.
