John McLaughlin's greatest strength, other than being the quickest ever electric guitarist in jazz, has been the ability to reinvent himself. A funkier side comes out during "Abbaji (For Alla Rakha)" in the reconstructed style McLaughlin has favored since the album Belo Horizonte, with soprano sax from George Brooks, and the Hundustani slide guitar of Debashish Bhattacharya in the midst of the melody, while a slower, soulful, contemporary beat identifies the lotus flower-sweet "Maharina.

McLaughlin himself reckons that Floating Point may be the best record he's ever made and he has good reason to be proud of this work. It would be a shame if this group didn't tour, for it is possible that McLaughlin has assembled the third truly great band of his remarkable career.

John McLaughlin has already said Floating Point, his brand new CD, May be the best record I ever made. That’s really saying something when you consider McLaughlin’s prolific and trailblazing career. The guitarist and composer has appeared on some of the most important jazz-rock and world music albums in the last 40 years. It’s hard to believe, but the jazz-rock pioneer McLaughlin is now in his 50th year as a professional musician.
