John McLaughlin and The 4th Dimension live at Molde Jazz Festival, July 21, 2011
John McLaughlin and the 4th Dimension played a phenomenal concert at Molde Jazz Festival, July 21, 2011. There is one personell change. Ranjit Barot has taken over for Mark Mondesir on drums. The set comprised, among others, Raju, The Unknown Dissident, Recovery, Senor C.S., Hijacked,Sully, Mother Tongues – a version very close to the Abstractlogix New Musical Universe CD set – with a great drum duet – Ranjit Barot and Gary Husband playing in tandem, A Love Supreme with chanting by John McLaughlin and Etienne Mbappe, as well as Light at the Edge of the World as a second encore.
McLaughlin and the band were in top form and the response from the audience was great.
This was John McLaughlin`s first concert in Molde in 25 years. It was very nice to see how well this
band does function. Those who have the opportunity to see the band this summer should not miss it!
