So – I did say I was going to write a post about playing the music of John McLaughlin, and all that that entails.
Well…..this isn’t it.
However, I wanted to – for the sake of those who are fans and cannot attend (or can and want to know what to expect) – post the complete list of material we will be performing over the next 2 nights. Once again the venue is:
Le Poisson Rouge – 158 Bleecker St, New York, NY
Shows 1 & 2 are tuesday night (tonight!) and show 3 is wednesday night.
So, without further ado, here are the set lists for this year’s VISHNUFEST.
Show 1: The John McLaughlin Songbook – Before & After Mahavishnu.

Do you hear the voices?
Special: SUITE FOR CHOIR:
