In 1974, Mouzon recorded Mind Transplant with guitarist Tommy Bolin.

  2. Crap, another legend gone. Tommy Bolin of course died many years ago but 2016 has many of our heroes gone forever.

  3. Very strange that 7 of the 8 titles all have a jeff beck connection.
    Tracks 1,3,6,7,8 were all names of Yardbirds song with #7 actually being a cover they did of a mose allsion song,track 2 was a song from Jeff Beck Group rough and ready track 4 from jeff beck group with rod stewart yet none of these songs are correctly named.

  7. Thanks, BigO!

    Glad to have this show. Not enough Tommy Bolin out there in a jazz mode (Billy Cobham’s Spectrum being a notable exception).

    Also check out Alphonse’s contributions on Patrick Moraz’z solo album “The Story of I”.

  8. I was stunned to find out here that he passed away. I didn’t know him personally but we exchanged emails and I can tell you he was a so nice person to communicate with. I can’t believe it.
