John Abercrombie's fluid guitar style reflects the permeable boundaries of jazz, rock, and funk, without sounding watered-down. Abercrombie cut his teeth in Johnny "Hammond" Smith’s group in the mid-1960s, and towards the end of the decade played alongside Randy and Michael Brecker in the group Dreams. But it was his role in Billy Cobham’s fusion group Spectrum that brought Abercrombie to international attention. In the mid-'70s, he formed his highly regarded trio Timeless, pursuing a softer, more delicate style of fusion. He produced some highly regarded duet work with Ralph Towner, and was involved in the all-star big band that recorded Charles Mingus’s epic work "Epitaph." Abercrombie has enjoyed a creative and prolific period through the new millennium.
