Electric Guitarist by John McLaughlin
Released: May 1990
Label: Columbia/Legacy
Decidedly more sedate than his masterful debut, John McLaughlin's fifth solo album is still steeped in the badass guitar of his best material. The identifying marks of his playing are closely shadowed by synths and a uniformly superb rhythm section. Jazz fusion may not always have the best rep, but in McLaughlin's hands, rock, funk and psychedelia are never far from the surface; the music breathes in a way that saves it from over-complexity. "Are You the One? Are You the One?" and "Phenomenon: Compulsion" could be outtakes from Miles Davis' incredible A Tribute to Jack Johnson.
