Description

It has been nearly two years since world-renowned guitarist John McLaughlin released 'To the One', his highly acclaimed, first studio recording, with The 4th Dimension. The veteran guitar aficionado celebrates his 70th birthday year with 'Now Here This' as he ups-the-ante even further with greater fire, finesse and freewheeling interplay.

McLaughlin's latest creative venture with The 4th Dimension, reflects a slight, yet significant, alteration of the dynamic, specifically the recruitment of powerhouse Indian drummer Ranjit Barot. Cameroon-born/Paris-resident bassist Etienne M'Bappe is back from 'To the One', as is keyboardist/drummer Gary Husband. This eight track set of McLaughlin originals testifies to the guitarist's decades-long fascination with Indian music, through his effortless virtuosity, and relentless lyricism, even when the guitarist is shredding at near-light speed.

There is little doubt that McLaughlin's return to the electrified fusion he first innovated more than 40 years ago in groups led by trumpet icon Miles Davis and drum legend Tony Williams - and, of course, with his own earth-shattering Mahavishnu Orchestra - is as electrifying and exhilarating as ever. And for those new to the genre, 'Now Here This' is the perfect introduction - one that will surely encourage them to also dive, head-first, into this legendary guitarist's lengthy and groundbreaking discography.

Personnel: John McLaughlin (guitar, guitar-synth), Gary Husband (piano, synthesizers, drums), Etienne M'Bappe (electric bass, fretless bass), Ranjit Barot (drums)
