JOHN MCLAUGHLIN Where Fortune Smiles

Album · 1971 · Avant-Garde Jazz
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners

Though it is often regarded as an album recorded under the leadership of guitarist John McLaughlin, Where Fortune Smiles is more truthfully an equal collaboration between McLaughlin and saxophonist John Surman. Recorded in 1970 and released the following year, this is an ambitious free-jazz release that hardly resembles the style of fusion that McLaughlin is most renowned for. With its loose structure and dissonant melodies, Where Fortune Smiles may not be an album for everybody, but it's still an interesting purchase for curious jazz collectors.

As I've previously mentioned, Where Fortune Smiles should not be looked at as a John McLaughlin solo observation, and maybe even viewing it as a collaboration between McLaughlin and Surman is a bit unfair. Although all of the tracks are credited to the aforementioned musicians, the compositions are so loose in their structure that the direction of the music largely depends on where the soloist decides to take the piece and how bassist Dave Holland and drummer Stu Martin decide to hold the song together. It's a challenging listen for sure, especially if you're not well-versed in free jazz, but each track still has a distinct melody to latch onto. The solos are consistently enjoyable, with Karl Berger's frantic vibraphone work stealing the show for me. The man's playing is simply outstanding, and the other musicians deliver great performances as well.

Some of the tracks here - namely, "Glancing Backwards", "New Place, Old Place", and "Hope" - are totally off the wall jam sessions, but there are some more mellow tracks to break up the madness with "Earth Bound Hearts" and "Where Fortune Smiles". The former features some nice soloing from John Surman, and the latter has some great melodic playing from both John McLaughlin and Karl Berger. While I wouldn't call either of them particularly standout tracks, they serve as effective breaks from the dense and highly improvisational nature of the other tunes.

On the whole, it's a bit tough to recommend Where Fortune Smiles since it is such an improvisational and difficult listen, but I don't think avant-jazz aficionados would regret picking this one up at all. While I personally demand a bit more structure from my jazz music, I still found plenty to enjoy here. Where Fortune Smiles is a cool little album from a quintet that I wish recorded more material, and while it may not be essential, it's a nice bridge between free jazz, post-bop, and fusion.

JOHN MCLAUGHLIN Now Here This (with The 4th Dimension)

It's rather sad or dissapointing to realize that such great artists run out of fuel with time. It's the case of hundreds, many of the grand 60s and 70s rock bands suffered from it, and also jazz musicians (and equally happens to painters, film directors, etc)

Not everyone is a Picasso or, for jazz sake, a Miles Davis, that with each new stylistic period they turn things upside down and make something of their own.

John McLaughlin is one of my favourite guitarists, his early solo work that meandered through free jazz and psychedelia was superb, while with Mahavishnu and Shakti he was breathtaking. Then the mid 70s came... not everything was lost, but you could clearly notice territories being walked again.

And now we are in 2012. What happened? I'd say production values changed, what's the sound of those drums? He's hitting inflated bags. The keyboards are digital as if we were still in the 80s and buried in the mix. I don't know why, but John since Industrial Zen or maybe even before, decided to add a very artifical distorted sound to his guitar that sounds like.. emm.. samey? undistinguished? The bass is there, doing a billion things, slapping and complex lines, but it sounds like in those various 80s fusion albums that just don't have bite.

In definitive, unquestionably, you hear the talent and the experience of these guys, John is a legend. And no, this is not pop or commercial music, he didn't sell his soul to the devil. But still, I really don't notice where's John's mind and spirit in this. He's having fun, playing energetic fusion, but sounds like plastic, nothing much to digest or even taste.

This probably sounds more interesting live, where the drums have a warm sound, while the rest get a chance to improvise and free their minds. If you don't mind if John isn't doing anything remotely new and that the sound is probably the laziest use of 2000s technology, then check this out; he still has the chops.

JOHN MCLAUGHLIN After the Rain

When “After the Rain” first came out in the mid 90s, its all-star lineup of McLaughlin, DeFrancesco and Elvin Jones certainly brought a lot of attention, especially since it was McLaughlin’s first jazz record in quite a while. The choice of tunes furthered interest as this looked to be bit of a Coltrane tribute with Trane’s great drummer, Elvin Jones, on board to boot. The playing from all three members is great, with Jones being somewhat subdued and Francesco stealing the show with lightning fast runs that pile on top of each other creating sheets of sound. Unfortunately though, the production and sound quality are rife with problems making this promising CD loose much of its potential.

By the time of this CD, much of the jazz world, including the new young acid jazz crowd as well as the equally new and young neo-bop crowd, had eschewed plastic digital electronics in their recordings and were aiming for a more real and gritty retro “Blue Note” type sound. Unfortunately McLaughlin didn’t get the memo and the sound of this CD is more suited for bland 80s fuzak, not hot aggressive hard bop. McLaughlin’s guitar sound is thin and overly processed and Elvin Jones drums are buried by a digitally enhanced high end cymbal sound. All three players are swamped with phony digital reverb and recording “plates” more suited for stadium rock bands, not small jazz combos.

Despite the production problems, there are some nice tunes on here. “Afro Blue”, with its rhythmic changeup, seems to inspire Joey and Johnny to some of their best solos and “Ecuentros” has some interesting exotic Spanish Phrygian chord progressions. Elsewhere on this CD, several bluesy numbers allow DeFrancesco to show that he is the new king of the Hammond B3.

JOHN MCLAUGHLIN Trio Of Doom (with Jaco Pastorius & Tony Williams)

Mostly live from the Havana Jam Festival in 1979, the ‘Trio of Doom’ album comes from something of a supergroup in terms of line-up, but also from something less than a side project, the trio apparently having been assembled expressly for the live show. While the three later recorded in the studio too, those pieces are not are raw as the live set, and suffer in comparison.

With Williams, McLaughlin and Pastorious together here, expectations should be high, though for me, they aren’t met. The line between ‘exciting improvisation’ and ‘aimlessness’ is criss-crossed too often for me, in spite of great individual performances and a wonderful ‘togetherness.’ Tony Williams is impressive, almost monstrous throughout the live tracks, while the studio cuts seem to pale with its cleaner sound and shorter running time. In fact, had the album been a longer live set, I think I’d have enjoyed it more. Taken together, the overall effect is almost redundant. I understand the desire to record in a controlled environment, but the studio versions, especially that of the powerful ‘Dark Prince’ (composed by McLaughlin,) don’t contain much fire and I feel the ‘Trio of Doom’ album would have been more memorable without them.

Jaco’s ‘Continuum’ is quite nice, it even approaches soothing and William’s ‘Para Oriente’ is probably the stand out, bringing some funk to their jamming and taking the piece all over the map at times. Passages of ‘Are you the One, Are you the One?’ represent some of the more unsatisfying moments, as if the three players were struggling for something memorable but never quite found it. In fact, that’s partly the problem for this one, though at the same time it is by no means a horrible release. I’m torn between suggesting this for fans only, especially of Williams who is the element who could have brought things up to three stars for me, even if ultimately, this is two albums in one. The live and the studio. And because the studio versions don’t bring much to the table, it’s not really a three star record in my book.

The truth about this rare album is that it was released originally as John Surman's work, but the later reissue was credited to John McLaughlin for pure marketing purposes.

Anyway, this music is quite different from anything released by McLaughlin before or after. This album features an excellent team of musicians, (rhythm section of Dave Holland and Stu Martin) and they sound great. Surman's reeds lead the band, but they are sometimes pulled down by Karl Berger's busy vibraphone work. McLaughlin is the composer of most of the album's songs and the only other composer is Surman.

The music itself is free-form knotty complex compositions with only a few fusion licks. This isn't an excellent record, but it makes for an interesting example of an almost unknown side to McLaughlin's music.

JOHN MCLAUGHLIN Abstract Logix Live! / The New Universe Music Festival 2010

Movie · 2011 · Fusion

Abstract Logix’s New Universe Festival of 2010 was probably one of the more significant fusion concerts in recent history, and it is all captured in excellent form on this concert video. Many of the top names in current fusion are here and what a great varied and colorful approach they all bring to this music that will always be associated with its 70s roots. Ranjit Barot fuses fusion with Indian flavors and orchestral music, Human Element bring back the beautiful noise and chaos that has been absent since the early days of jazz-rock, Wayne Krantz takes on the modern NYC flavor with his harsh jarring free funk, Jimmy Herring plays sentimental, sometimes delicate, progressive rock flavored fusion, and of course the great John McLaughlin rounds it all up with high speed post bop mixed with funk and contemporary fusion. Every single performance is top notch and very convincing in letting us know that there is still plenty of life left in this sometimes maligned genre.

The music on here is great, but the video itself is even better. Its amazing how far concert videos have come over the years. This one is clear as a bell and features lots of accurate close-ups of the musicians as they display their virtuoso skills. They say that fusion is a musician’s music, if that is the case, then this video is a great learning tool for the aspiring player. Much of the footage on here goes right to the source and features the musician’s hands as they work their scales and fret boards. Any aspiring fusionist can pick up a lifetime of high speed licks and extended technique by studying this video and even stop-starting it it frame by frame. Long gone are the days of vague camera angles from way far away and pointless shots of musicians grimacing while they play, this video is all about accuracy and showing you exactly how this music goes down. This is a spirited and enthusiastic concert and highly recommended for fans of modern fusion.
