Holy Thursday!

An expermentation in fusing jazz and rock sounds, David Axelrod's 1968 album "Song Of Innocense" is a very early example of the sound that would come to be known as jazz fusion. Producer, arranger, and engineer Axelrod made his mark with Cannonball Adderley, Lou Rawls, and the Electric Prunes. Song of Innocence made critics turn their heads in its day, regarding it as a visionary curiosity piece; today it's simply a great, timeless work of jazz rock art that continues to inspire over three decades after its initial release.....Classic!
