Reiussue of the Week : The Promise by John McLaughlin


albumcoverJohnMcLaughlin-ThePromise.jpg McLaughlin is universally recognized as one of the world's greatest guitarists. His pioneering recordings range from his landmark work with Miles Davis and Tony Williams, his own fusion recordings with The Mahavishnu Orchestra and his dazzling solo work in jazz and world music.


In 1996, McLaughlin released The Promise, an album that encapsulated his diverse resum√© ( jazz, fusion, world music) but has since gone out of print. Guests included fellow guitarists Jeff BeckAl DiMeola and Paco De Lucia. Jazz heavyweights such as organist Joey DeFrancesco, saxophonists David Sanborn and Michael Brecker and the singular Sting also contributed. And in traditional McLaughlin fashion, renowned world music musicians Zakir HussainNishat Khanand Trilok Gurtu also appeared, among others. The Promise, which McLaughlin produced, was quickly recognized as a modern classic. Out of print for more than a decade, The Promise returns to retail on November 2. (Taken from allaboutjazz).
