Trio Of Doom - Trio Of Doom Live

Sony LegacyRelease date June 26th 2007Nothing about this Sony Legacy release should have worked. The "Trio Of Doom" band (the mouthwatering prospect of John McGlaughlin(guitar), Jaco Pastorius (bass) and Tony Williams (drums)) was so short lived it hardly had time to be formed. There was a 25 minute "live" set in Havana in 1979 (as part of "Havana Jam", a US State Department sponsored concert)
