Album Review

The John McLaughlin Trio goes into the studio and broadens its stylistic range considerably in another musically satisfying, open-minded outing. Again, McLaughlin sounds rejuvenated and refreshed in this format, as he switches between acoustic guitar and a guitar synthesizer attachment that softens and rounds his attacks while creating some luminous timbres and textures.

Yes, there is even some fantastic straight-ahead blues grooving on "Hijacked" — if one may be permitted to use the terms guitar synthesizer and straight-ahead in the same sentence. ~ Richard S. Ginell, Rovi
