I’ve just had the pleasure to attend one of the very best gigs I’ve ever seen in my life and fulfilled a fantasy of mine at the same time. John McLaughlin and his band played a 220 seat club aka Ronnie Scott’s in London last night. I’ve never seen him in anything less than a 2-3,000 seater venue and the intimacy of such a small club made the experience so much more intense. John’s playing was superlative, with such drive, feeling and fire that dealt such a huge emotional hit. There was one solo which lasted 5 minutes/10 minutes/half a lifetime where he kept building, constantly searching – there was a little wry grin when what he wanted proved just beyond reach but most of the time he was getting there. 24 hours later and I’m still assimilating what went on. What a night. Cheers John
