Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Mahavishnu Orchestra: John McLaughlin (acoustic & electric guitars); Jerry Goodman (acoustic & electric violins); Jan Hammer (Fender Rhodes, ring modulator, piano); Rick Laird (electric bass); Billy Cobham (drums).
  • Includes liner notes by John McLaughlin.
  • All tracks have been digitally remastered using 20-bit technology.
  • As British bands like Yes, ELP, and Genesis extended the borders of rock & roll, John McLaughlin had seized the opportunity to do the same with jazz. The first stars of the jazz/rock fusion camp, the Mahavishnu Orchestra played sellout concerts, sold records in quantities previously unheard of by jazz musicians, and captured a crossover audience of forward-looking jazz devotees and progressive rock fans.
  • The music on THE INNER MOUNTING FLAME is incendiary and highly improvisational. Well-conceived unison melodic passages structure each tune, and McLaughlin and company play like the virtuosos they are throughout. "The Noonward Race" features a bluesy, yet harmonically dissonant solo from McLaughlin, and the frenetic drumming of Billy Cobham. In contrast, in "A Lotus on Irish Streams," McLaughlin soars passionately on an acoustic guitar, while violinist Jerry Goodman adds a simple, folky melody.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (1/6/72, p.64) - "...a retreat to more basic jazz and instrumental rock and roll. It's very similar to...DEVOTION, on which McLaughlin...made it clear that heavy rock music wasn't necessarily like having an anvil dropped on your skull..."

Mojo (Publisher) (2/99, p.102) - "...where the virtuosity of jazz and the power of rock really gelled...and this 1971 debut - holding frenzy on a leash through strangely serene Eastern, Celtic and bebop melodies, as well as meta-Hendrix riffage - is arguably their finest hour..."
