Late Night Jazz: John McLaughlinPosted: October 9, 2013
John McLaughlin was born on the 4th of January 1942 in Doncaster, England. His pioneering Super-fast, Super-loud Supergroup, the Mahavishnu Orchestra, left many in my generation with permanent hearing damage, and turned the rock world upside down. He’s 71 and still a killer. He, along with Miles Davis and his quintet were the foundations for jazz-rock fusion. I saw this quintet perform in 2010, and remember it fondly. For those up late at night, this is a good groove.
