John McLaughlin is hitting a stride with the 4th Dimension, a group we can all safely think of as a Mahavishnu Orchestra for this century. With just two studio albums to their name, To the One and Now Here This, the group has unleashed this live recording with their current lineup of McLaughlin, Gary Husband, Etienne Mbappe and Ranjit Barot. The Boston Recordwas recorded while the legendary fusion jazz guitarist and his new band were doing an American summer tour in 2013. Recorded in Boston (of course), it fulfills all of the musician’s hopes for an in-concert recording. How do I know that? He said so himself. On his website, you’ll find this little nugget of self-praise: “From time to time, a live record is made that has everything: great collective playing, a terrific audience, fantastic recorded sound, and a wonderful atmosphere.
