THE ESSENTIAL JOHN MCLAUGHLIN provides a stunning overview of John McLaughlin's diverse recorded output and brain-boggling approach to the guitar. On two discs and 23 tracks, ESSENTIAL splashes McLaughlin's superhuman instrumental technique across a large canvas, giving the listener ample chance to absorb his complex fusion of jazz, world music, rock, avant-garde, and 20th-century chamber styles.
Whether he's abetting Miles Davis during his boundary-pushing electric period, setting a high watermark for fusion with the Mahavishnu Orchestra, or working with his acoustic-based traditional Indian music ensemble, Shakti, McLaughlin's musicianship is restless, fascinating, and ever-inventive. ESSENTIAL provides a service in compiling tracks from across the artist's career, making it a perfect introduction to this iconic figure.
