Mahavishnu Orchestra: The Dance of Maya

"The Dance of Maya" is part subterranean dirge and part electric blues hootenanny. Its opening stretched-out deep and distorted guitar arpeggio and bass accompaniment, performed in 10/8, stands against a background of eerie silence until the rest of the band forcefully join the fray. Suddenly there is a hard turn right and the Mahavishnu Orchestra gets down la Papa John Creach and Hot Tuna! The hoedown dissolves into some serious shredding before the tune returns to its dark and haunting funereal beginnings.
