Happy 80th Birthday to Guitar Great John McLaughlin

On the occasion of his 80th birthday today, Jan. 4, 2022, I'm posting this podcast that I did with John-ji and Jazziz editor Brian Zimmerman on the occasion of the release of his album Liberation Time last summer, July of 2021. Some great stories with John, speaking from his home in Monaco, about Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix, Jaco Pastorius, Michael Brecker, spirituality, Sri Chinmoy, his decision to include two sparse solo piano pieces on his latest album and his thoughts on the passing of his two late comrades, Mahavishnu Orchestra bassist Rick Laird and his longtime friend and colleague, Chick Corea.
