John McLaughlin and The 4th Dimension is set to release their next recording, Now Here This , October 18th, 2012 on Abstract-Logix(US).
It has been nearly two years since John McLaughlin released To the One, his highly acclaimed, first studio recording, with The 4th Dimension. We were fortunate to see John McLaughlin and The 4th Dimension perform at The Town Hall in New York City on November 13, 2010.
McLaughlin’s latest creative venture with The 4th Dimension, reflects a slight, yet significant, alteration of the dynamic, specifically the recruitment of powerhouse Indian drummer Ranjit Barot. Cameroon-born/Paris-resident bassist Etienne M’Bappe is back from To the One, as is keyboardist/drummer Gary Husband
As John himself simply states, “Now Here This is the culmination of my life’s work till now.”
Can’t wait to hear these powerful eight tracks that contain the nucleus of Indian music, electric fusion and explosive fire.
Here they are performing live in 2011 for a sell-out crowd in Plaza de la Trinidad, Donosti, Spain who lovingly endures the rain with them 🙂
If you are interested in a very limited edition (500) numbered , hand signed vinyl release of the new record with maybe a bonus track and possibly a poster or a handwritten chart (printed) from John, sign up here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/39682191053/?ref=ts
