John McLaughlin and the 4th Dimension Live @ Belgrade is the first complete John McLaughlin concert ever presented on DVD. Live @ Belgrade, filmed in the summer of 2008 in Belgrade, Serbia, captures a remarkable performance of the band which features McLaughlin on guitar, Dominique di Piazza on bass, Gary Husband on keyboards and percussion and Mark Mondesir on drums.
The 4th Dimension plays an exciting set of tunes from McLaughlin’s past repertoire such as the dramatic ballad “The Unknown Dissident,” the playful “Little Miss Valley” and the explosively percussive “Mother Tongues.” Also offered are genre-bending tunes from McLaughlin’s latest CD, the Grammy nominated Floating Point. In addition, the set includes a thrilling new composition from keyboardist and drummer Gary Husband.
The concert was professionally filmed by Serbian Television which captured the band in all of its glorious power through engaging camera angles and fantastic sound recording.
This DVD is a great opportunity to spend some time in the 4th dimension with John McLaughlin and the 4th Dimension Live @ Belgrade.
