John McLaughlin: The Montreux Years
John McLaughlin – John McLaughlin: The Montreux Years
The jazz fusion pioneer in Montreux
Last year, the Montreux Jazz Festival and BMG launched a new joint album series, “The Montreux Years.” It is dedicated to a few of the world’s greatest musicians and singers and their performances throughout the 55-year history of the jazz festival.
John McLaughlin also appeared on stage as a regular guest. The 2022 album “John McLaughlin: The Montreux Years” gathers the highlights of six legendary concerts of the English guitarist, bandleader, composer and pioneer of fusion jazz.
This collection, compiled by John McLaughlin himself, comes as a CD and double LP. It includes previously unreleased material from festival co-founder Claude Nobs’ private collection of shows with bands such as The Mahavishnu Orchestra, The One Truth Band, The Heart Of Things, Paco de Lucia, The Free Spirits and The 4th Dimension from 1978, 1984, 1987, 1995, 1998 and 2016.
“The Montreux Years” series celebrates Nobs’ passion for the festival and his love of music and artists. Like all releases in the series, including albums by Etta James, Nina Simone, Marianne Faithfull and Muddy Waters, the recordings have been remastered for the release. “John McLaughlin: The Montreux Years” also includes new liner notes, unseen photos and annotations by John McLaughlin.
