Founder of the legendary Mahavishnu Orchestra John McLaughlin has consistently been one of the world’s great guitar innovators. One of the prime movers and shakers when jazz became electric in the late 1960s, he made a seminal contribution to the groundbreaking fusion of Miles Davis and has since been renowned for his quest for excellence and musical surprise.
Here McLaughlin returns to a powerhouse electric jazz setting with his band The 4th Dimension, featuring formidable keyboardist Gary Husband, the whirlwind drummer Ranjit Barot and Cameroonian bassist Etienne M'Bappe.
“One of the few Europeans to divert the course of jazz history” The Guardian
“Given the intensity of his inspiration, the technical capacity of McLaughlin is truly phenomenal. Yet the true force of his music is divine, and believably so – an experience of pleasure and energy, and yet sincere and exhilarating worship as well” Downbeat
