There are jazz guitarists, and there is John McLaughlin. The 68-year-old Englishman has been a standout since he changed the sound and feel of Miles Davis’s band on In a Silent Way in 1969, not only through the speed and agility of his playing, but also through the power and audacity of his sound. He turned the jazz world on its head two years later when he launched the Mahavishnu Orchestra, a high-volume, virtuosic quintet that added rock dynamics to the rhythmic and harmonic invention of jazz.
