We have a visitor today in Edinburgh, and it's not the new Prime Minister we are talking about.


John McLaughlin is in town this weekend at the Festival Theatre (July 16). A legendary guitarist who along with Anthony Williams, Chick Corea and Miles Davis helped form Jazz-Rock fusion in the late 60's and 70's.

An avant-gardist, he contributed on Miles Davis albums "Bitches Brew" and "In a Silent Way", highlighting his success with his Mahavishnu Orchestra.

"The inner mounting flame" (1971) and "Birds of fire" (1973) are two albums that we recommend checking out.
