5 stars Maybe the most ground-breaking jazz rock outfit of all times,MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA were an idea of skillful guitarist John McLaughlin.McLaughlin was a very spirited man,admiring the Indian culture, and had previous experience in song-writing having played next to jazz legend Miles Davis.The original line-up of the band included members from the four edges of the world and their debut ''The inner mounting flame'' came out in 1971.The album was trully a shock,as the band delivered unbelievable musicianship and interplays,deeply based on Eastern influences.McLaughlin's rocking' style of playing was in constant battle with Jerry Goodman's violin work and Jan Hammer's Minimoog keyboard,while the three members were supported by Irish Rick Laird's jazzy bass lines and Billy Combham's unusual crazy drumming.If it is hard for you to imagine Jimmy Hendrix-like guitars mixed with Indian music,funk & jazz then you should purchase this album...A masterpiece to remember!
