This is my favourite Yellowjackets album. Everything seemed to come together for this one---great songs, great playing, great recording. It all just fits perfectly.
Yellowjackets: Samaurai Samba, 1983?
A very upbeat, clean-sounding album. This was my introduction to the band, and is still one of my favourites. It features "Homecoming", which is probably their best-known tune.
Yellowjackets: Four Corners, 1987
This is one of the Yellowjackets' most exploratory albums. It ranges from the exotic 7/8 sequencer-driven textures of "Wildlife" to the free-flowing tone colours of "Geneva".
Yellowjackets: Blue Hats, 1997
This is my favourite of the Yellowjackets' later years, with Bob Mintzer on saxophone. This album features them in full-on fusion mode, with lots of good playing from everyone.
