Regardless of the setting, fusion jazz legend John McLaughlin possesses a unique ability to blow its roof off, no matter how subdued or dazzlingly fast he plays. Settled contently with his tight backing crew the 4th Dimension, McLaughlin leaves no one at the famed London venue Ronnie Scott’s disappointed thanks to his even blend of Mahavishnu Orchestra classics and newer tunes from his more recent efforts Now Here This and Black Light.   Read more >...

After playing with British Blues Bands in the mid-Sixties, McLaughlin moved to New York, where he helped pioneer the jazz rock that became known as fusion in the early Seventies. Miles Davis' jazz-rock classic Bitches Brew doesn't just feature McLaughlin, it also boasts a track named after him. In 1971, McLaughlin formed the Mahavishnu Orchestra, which combined the complex rhythms of Indian music with jazz harmonies and rock power chords. McLaughlin played blizzards of notes, clearly influenced by the sheets of sound of his idol, John Coltrane. The first two Mahavishnu albums, The Inner Mounting Flame and Birds of Fire , are every bit as incendiary as their titles suggest.

The following nights with Lenny White and Victor Wooten were marvelous in spite of our visible lack of rehearsal. One of the advantages of playing in a club is that even with bass and drums, the atmosphere remains intimate with the audience. So much so that if we blew the ending of a particular piece, we would redo it to get it right. There were times when we redid the endings three times! However, contrary to what you may think, the audience absolutely loved it. They were witness to musicians making mistakes and then getting it right, and in that atmosphere everything works.
