Review by Neu!mann
PROG REVIEWER
2 stars Ace guitarist John McLaughlin gave his nimble fingers a well-earned rest for this session, recorded live in the studio over two days in October 1994. Joining him were Joey DeFrancesco on Hammond organ and the legendary Elvin Jones behind the drumkit: not exactly your typical power trio (note the lack of a bass player).

The performances, as you would expect, are above criticism: McLaughlin has rarely played a wrong note over his long and varied career, and his skills are evenly matched here against two seasoned veterans. But the music itself is hardly what anyone would call challenging, and likely wasn't meant to be. At its best the album offers little more than a reliably polite reading of various cocktail-lounge instrumentals, hard to appreciate without a tested jazz palate.

And the production isn't exactly ideal. The smooth-as-silk style of Elvin Jones' drumming favors a ride cymbal that tends to smother other frequencies in a steady hiss of white noise. And McLaughlin's electric guitar is often pushed into the background mix by his own somewhat muted audio settings.

In the end there isn't much to be said about a collection featuring a tune ("My Favorite Things") lifted from "The Sound of Music", maybe the high water mark of wide-screen Hollywood schmaltz. Fans who share McLaughlin's passion for pure jazz will find much to admire here, but anyone looking for something a little more cutting-edge is aiming for disappointment.

4 stars There's something about the jazz organ that just pulls me in. And after Jimmy Smith, Joey DeFrancesco is one of the coolest. So teaming him with John Mclaughlin and the great Elvin Jones should produce a winner. And it has.

Bear in mind that this is by no means a prog or fusion album. This is pure be-bop. In fact, the majority of the album seems to be something of a tribute to John Coltrane. Three of the nine songs were written by Coltrane, plus they do a fine version of My Favorite Things, a Coltrane favorite.

McLaughlin sounds like he is enjoying himself immensely on the album, playing beautiful melodies and amazingly fast solos effortlessly. And Elvin Jones is just Elvin Jones. 'Nuff said.

As a jazz album, this would rate five stars to me. But here...

5 stars I seem to be hopelessly addicted to hear and evaluate just about any release that crosses my path - usually on others' recommendation.

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").
