No, doesn't sound copied at all. Sounds like something I would listen to because I'm a big fan of most of those peeps. Saw Crimson at the Ryman in Nashville last month. Brand X Earlier this year in Cincy and last year went to see Jimmy Herring and John Mclaughlin in Indy. Each band did their own thing then they regrouped and played a complete Mahavishnu set. It sounded like the live recordings of Mahavishu I've heard complete with vocals and weirdness. It was really, really cool.
