    Anyone else hitting this tour? Just picked up tickets for the show tonight in Chicago. Should be some insane playing. :kickass: I'll try to update the thread with some thoughts review if I can get online again soon.

    Also, I have a few of John's Mahavishnu material from the early 70s, but can someone offer some insight to his more recent material, say 90s - now?

    Saw it this past Sunday in Atlanta.

    It RULED!!!!!

    They'd all be going off, playing their own leads at the same time, seemingly in their own little worlds, and none of it sounded cacophonous at all. And then BAM! Suddenly they'd all start playing the exact same thing. That bassist was incredible.

    Chick Corea, legendary Jazz Piano player.

    John McLaughlin, guitar player for MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA, one of the first progressive/fusion bands to really bust into scene blending jazz and rock.

    Jerry Goodman, Violin player for Dixie Dregs, was one of the original members of Mahavishnu Orchestra. When I caught the Dregs a few years back, they busted out Dance of Maya.

    ahh nice to see some fusion/jazz fans up on here!

    john is mostly known for his work with mahivishnu and the guitar trio (al di meola, paco de lucia)

    ive listened to a bit of his solo stuff, and while its good its not anything that id go out of my way to recommend. seeing mclaughlin play with corea would be pretty great though. I am a bigger fan of corea's than i am of mclaughlin. however i do think the guitar trio cds were absolutely incredible, and i WOULD recommend those.

    anyway, im looking up tour dates now!

    Kenso you are nuts. John's solo work is amazing, from his guitar to his 'electronica.'

    I wish the NYC date wasn't when it is because I would be there in a heartbeat. I've seen Chick and John already but Vinnie has eluded me. Always playing in Cali :cry:
