  10. If the other day’s posting from the Mahavishnu Orchestra was jazz-rock fusion, think of this as jazz-funk fusion. A lot easier listening than Mr. McLaughlin’s band, but I, for one, often felt that McLaughlin’s bands tended to lapse into creating noise. On thee Mahavishnu recording, it feels as if the drummer – Danny Gottlieb – is pounding out a steady pulse that runs alongside the music rather than being integral to it., Alex Bailey’s perfectly responsive and integrated drumming here drives the music and makes its swing. Listening to how the drummers work on these two recordings speaks volumes to me about the difference between self-indulgence and audience-centric performance. Miller’s ultra-funky bass playing helps of course!

    I’ve said my piece, i’ll now leave this comment space to those who feel the need to compulsively self indulge while providing no entertainment value.

  16. Hey @FredeickMiller

    No one can seriously compare John McLaughlin with Marcus Miller.

    By The Ghost of Mike Millard on Mar 29, 2021

  17. Hey @Ghost of Mike Millard:

    Do I have your permission to compare their drummers? I was talking about the impact of their groups — and my preference is for Miller’s funky sense of fun over McLaughlin’s empty (to my ears) virtuosity.

    I know John McLaughlin is a technical wizard on the guitar — but that does not prevent many of his performances to strike me as empty despite the artistry. I am thinking back to hearing the first Mahavishnu incarnation live… I had never heard this much later one before.

    My approach to the guitar as a player colors how I hear others.

    Stevie Cropper turned two notes each repeated three times into an iconic guitar solo in “Soul Man.” I teach that to guitar students on their first day because it is so simple…. but so effective!

    If you enjoy John McLaughlin, that’s great. I’m talking about how I hear things — maybe say a little more about what you hear in McLaughlin’s music and I could learn from you.
