4 stars This is McLaughlin on electric guitar; the playing is absolutely 1st class, Mclaughlin being joined by Elvin Jones - no introduction necessary - and Joey DeFrancesco, previously unknown to me, but here giving an absolute 5 star performance on Hammond (listen to "Take the Coltrane"). This is musicianship of the very highest level as the trio re-work a number of old standards, including a great rendition of "My Favourite Things". You need to be aware though this really is a jazz album, it's not "fusion" or in any noticeable way reminiscent of Mahavishnu. For that reason I give it 4 stars here on PA - you can't really call it a prog masterpeice - but on every other level it's an absolute 5 star, gold plated gem.
