John McLaughlin and the 4th Dimension

John McLaughlin.jpg


A former protégé of Miles Davis and the true pioneer of electric jazz

John McLaughlin wields a fiercely virtuosic style that straddles everything from R’n’B groove to rock’n’roll skronk to the razor-sharp rhythms of traditional Indian music.

Renowned for technically precise and blisteringly fast guitar work, McLaughlin’s live shows have become a thing of legend – bursting with improvisational energy, unexpected textures and moments of transcendent beauty.
