All-You-Can-Eat John McLaughlin In The Jazz Underground

This installment of Notes From The Jazz Underground features the playlist based on the January 3rd show.

The prior two weeks celebrated Frank Zappa and John Scofield.  This week: wall to wall John McLaughlin in celebration of his 72nd birthday.  Seven decades leads to a ton of variety and many collaborations, so dig in to tracks with Miles, Tony Williams, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Shakti, Carlos Santana, Five Peace Band (McLaughlin w/Chick Corea, Vinnie Colaiuta, Kenny Garrett and Christian McBride) and (why-the-hell-not) with an all cello ensemble.

NFTJU host Paul Abella remarks, "musically speaking, one of the most musically inspiring shows I've done yet."

Notes From The Jazz Underground runs Friday nights on WDCB 90.9 FM.
