Lenny White's "Venusian Summer" is a reissue of a 1975 album by this superb jazz drummer, assisted by great guitarists such as Al Di Meola, Larry Coryell, Ray Gomez and Doug Rodrigues, along with keyboard players including Jimmy Smith and Larry Young. Six tracks total mark this classic mid '70s fusion album, including "Chicken Fried Steak" and "Prince Of The Sea", the latter which features Di Meola and Coryell cuttin' heads. A drummer-led, guitarist-fueled instrumental fusion must-have.
