“Visions of a Dream” is another in the series of Seventies Jazz Fusion sets, this one drifting back and forth from the more obscure to the more familiar. We start the journey with a cut from the obscure band Flight from their 1976 album, “Incredible Journey;” then a cut from the far-from-obscure 1976 Return To Forever album, “Romantic Warrior” (what a lineup!); we follow with the title track from a hard to find 1976 album by Mingo Lewis; continuing with the more familiar Passport and a cut from their 1977 album, “Infinity Machine;” then two songs from the somewhat-obscure band, Nova, first from their 1977 “Wings of Love” album, then from their 1976 “Vimana” album; turning to the more familiar Weather Report from their 1977 “Heavy Weather” album; into the more obscure Turning Point from their 1977 “Creatures of the Night” album; then Gap Mangione from his 1978 “Suite Lady” album; and wrapping up the set with a cut from Jan Akkerman’s 1977 self-titled album.
