John McLaughlin / Electric Guitarist

John McLaughlin’s foray into the more commercial aspects of jazz fusion flourished greatly on Electric Guitarist (1978).

Forsaking his usual shredding atop odd-time signatures for grooves complimented by decipherable melodies, the British guitar icon brings his famous four-string friends Jack Bruce, Alphonso Johnson, Stanley Clarke, Neil Jason, and Fernando Saunders into the mix for one of the most accessible (and timeless) releases from the golden era of the aforementioned genre.
