An album by John McLaughlin

The jazz-rock deity proves again that he can kick butt with a six-string acoustic. Percussionist Trilok Gurtu provides the exotic edge. --Jeff Bateman

ACOUSTIC McLAUGHLIN IN GOOD FORM.

+5
This CD from 1992 features Mclaughlin on acoustic guitar and guitar synthesizer with Trilok Gurtu on percussion and Dominique Di Plaza on bass.
The music is in the unmistaken style of Mclaughlin, a Fusion of Jazz, Flamenco and indian music, and his playing is as usual, as good as it gets and it is always a treat to hear the great percussion playing of Trilok Gurtu who has created a totaly new way of playing percussion by mixing Indian and Western playing styles.

It is so fascinating to hear the great rhythmic interplay between Gurtu and Mclaughlin they turn and twist it around so you'l never get bored with it, it's this mastery of rhythm that is one of the things I like about masters of indian music like Ravi Shankar and Zakir Hussain.

Mclaughlin also has a very sophisticated harmonic sense and it's fun to hear him improvise over these great rhythms and harmonies.

Like most of his stuff this is highly recomended.
