John McLaughlin and the 4th Dimension + Hedvig Mollestad Trio
20 Nov 2014
LONDON Southbank Centre / Royal Festival Hall
The genius of the electric bass returns to the Festival with a brand new recording. Producer and collaborator of choice for the likes of David Sanborn, Herbie Hancock, George Benson, Luther Vandross and, crucially, Miles Davis, his live bands feature a signature mix of infectious funk, jazz and soul that’s guaranteed to rock the house.
Having spent most of the year off the concert scene, he’s recorded a new album out soon on Blue Note — and this is the live world premiere.
