John McLaughlin remains at the forefront of electric jazz. Not only playing on Miles Davis’ Bitches Brew but also forming his pioneering Mahavishnu Orchestra, and the groundbreaking Shakti, it is without hyperbole that The Guardian calls McLaughlin 'one of the few Europeans to divert the course of jazz history'. The rock influences remain – this is a man who played with Jack Bruce and even jammed with Hendrix – but so too do traces of everything from blues to flamenco.

The 4th Dimension, featuring multi-instrumentalist Gary Husband, Cameroonian bassist Etienne M’Bappe, and Indian drummer Ranjit Barot, sold out Ronnie Scott’s weeks in advance last summer and now return to a London concert hall for the first time in two years.

John McLaughlin and the 4th Dimension's new album Now Here This is out now.

Arun Ghosh and his exciting live band perform hypnotic music, updating the rich lineage of the Indo-jazz sound with 21st century attitude and energy.
