8 May 2011, 17:03 by Mark_HThis chart shows Prog Rock acts sorted by average plays per listener. An attempt has been made to ensure that the chart is clean of acts that have a minority of listeners who artificially inflate the average play number, but as that task is essentially impossible, take this chart with a large pinch of salt.

Мир перегружен стандартной однообразной музыкой. Шоу-бизнес привел творчество к непрерывному потоку однотонной продукции. Индивидуальность уступает место массовой культуре. И все же появляются новые музыканты, разрушающие понятия «формат» и «неформат», создающие загадочные музыкальные архитектуры, комбинируя казалось бы несовместимые стили, производя реконструкции по своему желанию. Одним из таких реконструкторов и является музыкант-экспериментатор Билл Ласвелл (Bill Laswell).
Bill Laswell родился 14 февраля 1950 года. Путь в мир музыки начинался довольно просто: молодой бас-гитарист сначала играет в школьных ансамблях и rhythm and blues'овых группах. Постепенно он вырабатывает стиль и манеру своей игры, в первую очередь основанную на плотности, компрессии и ритме инструмента. Многочисленные выступления с soul, funk, country-музыкантами в самых различных контекстах…

The drummer Tony Williams was talent spotted at age 17 and shortly thereafter joined Miles Davis's quintet, achieving a hefty helping of success and cult following for his adept skill as part of Davis' rhythm section. In '69 at the age of 23 though Williams surprised by leaving Davis' group to put together The Tony Williams Lifetime with guitarist John McLaughlin and organist Larry Young. Soon after their first album Emergency line up was joined by Cream's Jack Bruce on bass. However acclaimed the initial couple of records were in the jazz world though, the group couldn't maintain a steady line-up and gradually collapsed.
In 1975 The New Tony Williams Lifetime was formed with pianist Alan Pasqua, guitarist Allan Holdsworth and bassist Tony Newton. The New Lifetime lasted only two albums but the first 'Believe It' is a very highly acclaimed jazz fusion record.
This track kicks the album off with a very funky rocky bass line by Newton who also wrote the track.
30 May 2007, 10:30 by Nectar_CardMiles Davis "(26 May 1926 – 28 September 1991) was one of the most influential musicians of the latter half of the 20th century. A trumpeter, bandleader and composer, Davis was at the forefront of almost every major development in jazz from World War II to the 1990s. He played on various early bebop records and recorded one of the first cool jazz records. He was partially responsible for the development of modal jazz, and jazz fusion arose from his work with other musicians in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Free jazz was the only post-war jazz style not significantly influenced by Davis, although some musicians from his bands later pursued this style. Davis had a talent for drawing together talented musicians in small groups and allowing them space to develop. Many of the major figures in post-war jazz played in one of Davis's groups at some point in their career.” (from Wikipedia)
