Album Review

In the early '70s John McLaughlin was one-third of the supergroup Lifetime with drummer Tony Williams and organist Larry Young. This particular CD from 1994 matches him with drummer Elvin Jones and organist Joey DeFrancesco, but the music has little in common with Lifetime. Instead many of the tunes can be considered to be tributes to John Coltrane; Jones's participation certainly reinforces that connection. McLaughlin, back on electric guitar after several years sticking almost exclusively to acoustic, is in top form on such numbers as "Take the Coltrane," "My Favorite Things," "Crescent," and "Afro Blue." The improvising is advanced and colorful with DeFrancesco keeping the proceedings swinging, and even if the results are not quite classic, the collaboration is somewhat unique.

I loved this album since I first placed it into my CD player. It's a very modern jazz number infused with soul and it is just wonderful. Just hear the samples and you will see what I mean.

Fantastic

I love the music on this album. It is full of energy and the musicians are seasoned pros. The combination of these instruments, how masterfully they are played, how well recorded they are, and how good the compositions are, will make you fall in love with this album. Perfect with a cappucino.
