Description

'Live at Ronnie Scott's' offers the listener a wonderful souvenir of a sold-out, two-night stand at the beloved venue by boundary-shattering guitarist John McLaughlin and the 4th Dimension, recorded in March of 2017.

In the 4th Dimension - Ranjit Barot (drums, konokol), Gary Husband (keyboards, drums), and Etienne M'Bappé (bass) - McLaughlin has gathered a band with the technical dexterity and soulful musicality to do ample justice to his vast catalogue. They can follow him anywhere, and together on 'Live @ Ronnie Scott's' McLaughlin and the 4th Dimension explore everything from early Mahavishnu Orchestra classics to compositions from their most recent studio LP, 'Black Light'.

Most striking about Live @ Ronnie Scott's is the restraint and fluidity on display: So connected are the band's four members that the interplay approaches telepathic levels, making for powerfully evocative performances without any wasted gestures. Longtime fans will be thrilled to hear favourites like "Vital Transformation" (from Mahavishnu's 1971 Inner Mounting Flame album) and "Miles Beyond" (from 1973's Birds of Fire) re-examined through the lens of the 4th Dimension's unparalleled sensitivity and facility. Hearing such standards alongside recent compositions like "El Hombre Que Sabia" and the moving "Gaza City" serves to demonstrate the breadth and scope of McLaughlin's vision, honed over a career now spanning fifty years.

"The intimacy of Ronnie's brought out some startling playing," wrote London Jazz News immediately following the shows. "There was no mistaking McLaughlin's enthusiasm for revisiting these landmark compositions, reconfirming and even rediscovering their quality and longevity."
