John McLaughlin and Paco De Lucia

I first saw John McLaughlin in the first incarnation of the Mahavishnu Orchestra. That’s going back a long way, but in all that time he’s never stopped exploring and pushing the boundaries and his incredible technique are always at the service of the music, whether that’s jazz, fusion, indian music, flamenco-influenced music…

He’s a great collaborator, and one of the most productive unions has been with the great flamenco guitarist Paco De Lucia – often with others but also, as here, simply in duet. Well, perhaps “simply” isn’t the best choice of words…

This is a recording of a concert in Freiburg in 1987

  • 00:35 Spain (Chick Corea)
