The Boston Record
John McLaughlin, who rose to fame in the 1970s as a prominent member of the jazz fusion ensemble the Mahavishnu Orchestra, has achieved something of a mythic status in music history. Jeff Beck of the Yardbirds has considered McLaughlin "the best guitarist alive", due to his unconventional, revolutionary method of playing and the starkly original music he has produced for decades.
McLaughlin is particularly proud of 'The Boston Record', as he said in the press release announcing the album: "From time to time, a live record is made that has everything: great collective playing, a terrific audience, fantastic recorded sound, and a wonderful atmosphere. In the new recording of our concert you'll find all of the above. I'm really happy about this recording".
This fiery performance features music from John's recent studio albums 'Now Here This' and 'To the One', not to mention a new take on the classic Mahavishnu Orchestra piece, "You Know, You Know", originally part of The Inner Mounting Flame album from 1971.
