Guitarist John McLauglin (1942) was one of the men present at the birth of jazz-rock fusion having played on albums like In A Silent Way and Bitches Brew by Miles Davis. And he still carries on playing, like with his group 4th Dimension. The guitarist, who was born in Yorkshire, was invited to America by drummer Tony Williams to play with his group in 1969. He further developed his intense and versatile playing in his own group Mahavishnu Orchestra and later in Shakti, where he blended jazz with Indian music. His groups One Truth Band and 4th Dimension followed later. With the latter, he recorded the album Live In San Francisco (2018). On it he re-recorded pieces from his Mahavishnu period.
