John McLaughlin

John McLaughlin playing guitar, wearing a suit

Bringing together musicians from different musical cultures and traditions in his all-star band, guitarist John McLaughlin performs with The 4th Dimension.

Weaving the joyful spontaneity of jazz with cultural influences from rock, contemporary Indian music, West African sounds and more, John McLaughlin and The 4th Dimension’s live shows are as ear-opening as they are technically impressive.

Having worked with virtually all international jazz greats, John McLaughlin has always been guided by respect and openness towards other directions, forms of expression, styles and cultures. Gary Husband is a truly versatile instrumentalist, switching from keyboard to drums with amazing ease and has worked with Jeff Beck and Gary Moore; Mumbai’s Ranjit Barot has drummed for Bill Evans and Scott Kinsey; Étienne M'Bappé is one today’s world's finest bass players who has performed with Ray Charles, Salif Keita and Joe Zawinul.
