Today HPR All Things Considered Host Dave Lawrence welcomes back one of the all-time greatest guitarists, John McLaughlin, who our guest from last week, Pat Metheny, calls one of the greatest guitar players alive. Last year guitarist John McLaughlin teamed up with Jimmy Herring for a remarkable tour, and now, it's a release. The tour was billed as John's last, and called The Meeting of the Spirits. It featured Jimmy Herring's band The Invisible Whip and John McLaughlin's group The 4th Dimension. Then, the two groups played a third set together, playing classic Mahavishnu Orchestra material. That third set from their Warfield Theatre, San Francisco date is the music featured on their new release, Live in San Francisco.
