Widely recognized as one of the most innovative and influential guitar players since the 1960s, John McLaughlin has forged a musical path that has seen him flirt with everything from hard rock to world music. Since the 1970's John McLaughlin's long career has always taken mystical turns, from the Mahavishnu Orchestra to Shakti. A fusion player in the true sense of the word, McLaughlin continued his progressive stylistic synthesis on 2006's "Industrial Zen". While the guitarist is also known for his meditative work (especially his experiments with Indian music), "Industrial Zen" is something of a return to the jazz fusion that marked McLaughlin's work with Miles Davis and his own group, the Mahavishnu Orchestra. Drummer Dennis Chambers, saxophonist Bill Evans, and guitar virtuoso Eric Johnson, among others, are on hand to lend sparks to the icon's six-string wizardry.
