3 stars The Free Spirits Trio plays live in Japan. McLaughlin plays electric guitar, fast and energetic, as in his early years. Unhappily, main music is built by Joey DeFrancesco Hammond organ. All but one compositions are written by McLaughlin. Music in total sounds as be-bop/ fusion with minimalistic sound, filled by vintage keyboards soloing.

Many compositions have a blues based structure, and even if musicianship is very competent, all album sounds very dated as for year 1994. Could attract McLaughlin collectors and searchers of vintage minimalistic jazz fusion with accent on jazzy side.
