Here is a brief description about this work:
Legendary guitarist and composer John McLaughlin recorded historic music with Miles Davis and the revolutionary Tony Williams Lifetime. He founded the fusion super group, The Mahavishnu Orchestra. McLaughlin helped pave the way for World Music in Shakti. The acoustic Guitar Trio ushered in the unplugged movement. Grammy winner McLaughlin, who Jeff Beck says is the best guitarist in the world, continues to influence generations of musicians. Follow Your Heart takes you on a fascinating journey of the music of John McLaughlin -- song by song. The tour guide is Walter Kolosky, author of the award winning Power, Passion and Beauty: The Story of the Legendary Mahavishnu Orchestra. He is aided by a foreword written by Chick Corea, expert musicologists, exclusive insights from John McLaughlin himself and many remarkable images never before published. Follow Your Heart is an invaluable listening guide, history, reference book and source of inspiration all rolled into one.
