Michael White - The X Factor (Elektra 1978)


Blogger low said...

Still relatively unknown nearing the end of the 1970s, this talented violinist turned to George Duke to produce, arrange and hopefully reach some ears. The result for the most part is enjoyable but unremarkable jazz-pop-soul. On tunes like "The Red Planet," though, he's right there with the glory days of Mahavishnu Orchestra and Billy Cobham. It suggests what might have been for White before Jean-Luc Ponty staked out the high ground on the jazz violin landscape.

1. You Are My Heartbeat

4. Well, Do It Then
5. The Red Planet
6. We Don't Eat No Meat

8. Smile In Your Eyes
9. X Factor
