Bull recorded the album accompanied by Billy Higgins , a session jazz drummer who had previously appeared on early Ornette Coleman records. The highlight of Fantasias for Guitar and Banjo is usually considered to be its opener "Blend", a lengthy improvisational piece.
Matthew Greenwald of AllMusic describes Fantasias for Guitar and Banjo as an "incredible debut" and lauds it for being well ahead of its time. Pearlman said that, with Fantasias , Bull "became a leading innovator in the assimilation of Indian influences into a Western musical context".
Author Kevin Fellezs views the album as a prime example of an "underacknowledged early fusion-world recording that remains musically compelling today". From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
