This is a special podcast of Eastern or Indian influenced jazz music. We will hear from Alice Coltrane, John McLaughlin, Charles Lloyd and more. This influence even affected the Beatles, particularly George Harrison. The last portion of this podcast shows a funky side of Indo-Jazz fusion with many influences.

LC Tribute

This week's podcast pays tribute to guitarist extroadinaire, Larry Coryell. While best known for his contribution to jazz rock fusion, Coryell was a master of all styles of guitar playing. This playlist demonstrates his wide ranging abilities in a variety of musical settings. Coryell passed away suddenly last week at age 73. His artistry and virtuosity will be missed.
