backed up by the Carson-era Tonight Show Band (SLYT guitar porn)
A master of many styles, McLaughlin is known for early work in psychedelic rock ("Dragon Song,"
1970), experimental jazz with Tony Williams' "Lifetime" (jam
, 1969), as band-leader for the Mahavishnu Orchestra (jam
, 1974), as a collaborator with Miles Davis ("Right Off,"
1971), jazz-rock with Carlos Santana ("A Love Supreme,"
1972), an Indian/Western fusion artist with the group Shakti ("Finding the Way,"
1999), and for his work in more traditional Spanish guitar music ("Meditarena Sundance"
with Paco de Lucia and Al di Meola, ca. ?), although I'm probably missing something.
But big-band standards? No problem.
And I know, my favorite guitarist sucks.
