I am not a fan of jazz in general, but this cd is absolutely brilliant. I was introduced to John McLaughlin by my guitar teacher, and dutifully bought the cd, almost immediately putting it into my "really esoteric and never listened to" cd bin. However, I gave it a couple of listens and was stunned by it. Maybe the 1,569th listen of Physical Graffiti was making me yearn for something a bit more in depth, but this recording has really opened me up to different kind of music and playing. Also, I usually don't notice drums too much when I listen to music, but there's a guy named Trilok Gurtu who does the percussion on this album and he'll blow your mind. I mean it. Your head will actually explode. Enjoy
