A far reaching set from fusion rooted, but boundlessly talented jazz guitarist John McLaughlin – featuring an all star roster of guests and admirers and a stylistic sprawling set of numbers! A few numbers with voice accompaniment add a spiritual depth, but for the most part, Promise intends to provide a snapshot of the McLaughlin's reach, from electric fusion to straighter post bop jazz and beyond – and the promise is delivered. Titles include "Django", "Thelonius Melodius" with a verse of Dante read by Stefania Bimbi, "Amy And Joseph", "The Wish", "English Jam", "The Peacocks" with a verse of Garcia Lorea read by Susana Beatrix
, "Shin Jin Rui", "El Ciego" and more.
