John McLaughlin Tickets
John McLaughlin TicketsAs a true musical pioneer and innovator, John McLaughlin has created an eclectic style that is difficult to describe. It is simultaneously known as jazz fusion, classical crossover and progressive rock, but with an added twist, he has incorporated unconventional scales and elements of Indian music. Rolling Stone and Guitar World have cited him as one of the best guitar players of all time. He has been a major influence in the jazz fusion genre since the second half of the 20th century.
Guitar ProdigyBorn in Doncaster, England, John McLaughlin grew up in a household of musicians. He studied both violin and piano as a child, but early in his career, John McLaughlin became well-known for his proficiency with a guitar. After moving to the United States, he recorded tracks with the Rolling Stones, Carlos Santana and Miles Davis; he also had a one-night jam session with Jimi Hendrix. Venturing out into a solo career, McLaughlin released a debut album, Extrapolation, in 1969 and then a follow-up, Devotion, a year later. While continuing to develop his solo work, McLaughlin founded a jazz fusion band called Mahavishnu Orchestra and an Indian fusion band called Shakti in the 1970s. These new ventures would absorb part of his time, though he would release new solo albums with Electric Guitarist in 1978, Electric Dreams in 1979, Belo Horizonte in 1981 and Music Spoken Here in 1982. Following a 10-year gap in his solo career, McLaughlin returned with Que Alegria in 1992. He continued to record albums well into the 21st century with the labels Verve Records and later Abstract Logix. His jazz fusion band Mahavishnu Orchestra underwent several incarnations over the years. The band's final album, The Lost Trident Sessions, came out in 1999. He also recreated the band Shakti at the turn of the century and released several new albums. Around 2007, he created a new touring band known as the 4th Dimension to supplement his solo performances.
