Description Technical Specs

John McLaughlin is a jewel among guitarists. After coming to
prominence in Miles Davis’s experimental fusion bands of 1969/70, he became one
of the early electric guitar superstars with his jazz-rock band Mahavishnu
Orchestra in 1971. In the years since then his career has covered a broad range
of styles and genres. As comfortable on acoustic as he is on electric guitar,
John’s music ranges freely through mainstream jazz, Flamenco and traditional
European classical music, but always returns to electric jazz-fusion. A major
part of his work has been the development of his own style of jazz fused with
Indian music, and he was one of the first musicians to work in the now
established genre of World music. This updated and expanded third edition
presents a commentary on John McLaughlin’s music through his recorded works. It
provides an analysis of his unique style and his remarkable achievements in
both performance and composition. The book was prepared with help from McLaughlin's current keyboardist, Gary Husband.
