John Mclaughlin, Kai Eckhardt, Trilok Gurtu - Live

"Four long years had passed since McLaughlin's last record when JMT released Live at the Royal Festival Hall in 1990. The brilliant percussionist Trilok Gurtu, of Oregon fame, joined him—along with superb bassist Kai Eckhardt—to form an exciting band which was to exist in one form or another (with revolving bassists) for five more years. The mostly acoustic music which fills this album, augmented by electric bass and John's guitar synthesizer, is a mix of standard jazz, fusion and Indian-influenced rhythms and melody lines. "

Personnel: John McLaughlin - Guitar; Trilok Gurtu - Percussion; Kai Eckhardt - Bass
