The Village Theatre presents Jazz Guitarist Eddie Fisher with the announcement of a release on the Universal Record Label/ Verb Group an album that has been grown to be recognized as one of the more visionary albums in American music: The Next One Hundred Years. Originally released on the Chess label subsidiary Cadet, it reveals a musician/composer of the highest order in the realm of jazz fusion. The Next One Hundred Years anticipated the future of music so knowingly it is no surprise how 'contemporary' it sounds today, 36 years after its creation. Along with Eddie's currently out-of-print masterpiece The Third Cup, this album demonstrates why many consider Fisher to be the single most under-rated jazz guitarist of the past few decades.
Before the age of 20, Eddie Fisher had been employed as bandleader for Albert King and Solomon Burke... quite a resume, to say the least. In a career that has weathered the changing styles in music, Mr. Fisher has released a total of 6 LPs, formed his own label during the 70s, and toured the world. He has shared stages with the likes of Herbie Hancock, Ahmad Jamal, Wayne Shorter, Oliver Nelson, Isaac Hayes and David Sanborn. In a youthful middle-age his reputation as a pioneer has never been greater. Make sure you stop by EF's website, www.fisherjazzsounds.com.
