This podcast celebrates the birthday of jazz fusion guitarist John McLaughlin. We play his music in several different settings to show the depth of his artistry and innovation. Most of this show has (Mahavishnu) John McLaughlin as a leader, but there are also tracks as a sideman. His work with Miles Davis is legendary. The podcast ends with an unrelated track from a CTI release of Milt Jackson playing Hubbard's Sunflower.
