O’s Notes: Veteran jazz guitarist John McLaughlin puts together a set of six new soft fusion compositions that bring a taste of prime 1970s fusion to the new millennium. His band includes Gary Husband (keys, d, perc), Etienne M’Bappe (b) and Mark Mondesir (d). The primary inspiration for this session is John Coltrane’s landmark album A Love Supreme. McLaughlin also pays homage to the people who helped define his life. Among the best tunes are “Discovery”, “Recovery” and the title track.
