Jerry Goodman & Jan Hammer

After the reportedly rancorous 1973 split of the original Mahavishnu Orchestra, which left the group's unfinished third studio album to languish in the vaults (the live Between Nothingness & Eternity was issued instead), violinist Jerry Goodman and keyboardist Jan Hammer formed a duo and recorded the album Like Children, which arrived the following year. Hammer was the principal composer of the album's tracks, including album highlight "Country & Eastern Music," while Goodman penned "Topeka" and the closing "I Wonder," and another Mahavishnu alumni, bassist Rick Laird, wrote "Steppings Tones." Goodman and Hammer multi-tracked all the album's songs, with the violinist also playing viola and electric and acoustic mandolin and guitar, and the keyboardist handling bass, drums, and percussion in addition to his arsenal of pianos and synthesizers. The pair also sang. Like Children ranged from the appropriately titled fusiony blend of "Country & Eastern Music" to atmospheric new age and electronics, and even touches of funk, rock, and boogie.

To some, Like Children suggested different directions that John McLaughlin's Mahavishnu ensemble might have taken if Hammer in particular had been allowed a greater compositional role in the group (the first two Mahavishnu albums, 1971's The Inner Mounting Flame and 1972's Birds of Fire, featured McLaughlin compositions exclusively). In fact, Between Nothingness & Eternity did include the Hammer composition "Andrea," and when the band's unreleased third album finally saw the light of day as The Lost Trident Sessions in 1999, it featured several tracks with writing credits aside from McLaughlin: not only the studio version of Hammer's "Andrea," but also versions of Goodman's "I Wonder" and Laird's "Steppings Tones." But the band was splitting apart despite these signs of collaboration that surfaced on disc decades later. At the time of its release in 1974, Like Children was the album that revealed something of what Jerry Goodman & Jan Hammer could accomplish as full creative partners, and a bit of what they might have added to Mahavishnu Orchestra had the group remained intact. As it turned out, they too would go their separate ways, and Like Children would be their only album as a duo. ~ Dave Lynch

This is a great find. Also interesting was the information as to how this record came about. Too bad they never reconciled their creative differences while together with Mahavishnu. Like the band Yes, they were among the greatest in progressive music at the time.

Man would I like to meet this guy...he does such amazing work on creating sound along side other greats in Mahavishnu. I've also enjoyed the work he did with The Flock. Still exploring though. I wish i bust the chops Jerry could!

I had the enormous pleasure of finally meeting Jerry Goodman,when asked to deliver a set of SIMMONDS electric drums ( new to market) 1982 to a performance of the ELECTRONIC WARRIORS in Palo Alto, CA.I had been a fan of his for 10-12 years, so getting to work around him was inspiring--- especially since he was playing that night with a casual pick-up band consisting of JOAQUIN LIEVANO (guitar), RANDY JACKSON (bass), T LAVITZ (keys)and NARADA MICHAEL WALTON (DRUMS). Unforgettabl e .

Jerry's an incredible player. His '80s albums Ariel and It's Alive (a concert of material from the Private Music albums) are nothing short of brilliant, and worth trying to find.
I've seen him w/ the original Mahavishnu Orchestra (most energetic concert I've ever experienced) , with the Dregs, and with Shadowfax. With the latter, he only did one tour, never recorded; I attended their NYC date, and aside from Shadowfax tunes they played - beautifully - one of his from Ariel.
CHECK. HIM. OUT.
