Personnel: John McLaughlin (acoustic & electric guitars, midi guitar, keyboards, birds song, percussion); Nishat Khan (vocals, sitar); Mariku Takahasi (vocals); Susana Bйatrix (spoken vocals, birds song, percussion); Stephania Bimbi (spoken vocals); David Sanborn (alto saxophone); Michael Brecker (tenor saxophone); Joey DeFrancesco (trumpet, Hammond B-3 organ); Tony Hymas, Jim Beard (keyboards); Paco De Lucia, Al Di Meola, Philippe Loli (acoustic guitar); Jeff Beck (electric guitar); Yan Maresz (acoustic bass); Pino Palladino, James Genus, Sting (bass); Mark Mondйsir, Dennis Chambers, Vinnie Colaiuta (drums); Zakir Hussain (tabla); Toto (birds song, percussion); Don Alias, Trilok Gurtu (percussion). Producers: John McLaughlin, Eddie Kramer. Engineers include: Kenny Jones, Gustav Hobel, Maurice Ouazana. On THE PROMISE, John McLaughlin fuses together a variety of sessions that highlight his rich musical eclecticism. Tracks such as "Jazz Jungle" are all-out virtuoso jams that exalt the technical prowess of McLaughlin, drummer Dennis Chambers, and tenor saxophonist Michael Brecker. "Django" is a rock-inflected jazz waltz featuring Jeff Beck on guitar. "Thelonious Melodius" is much more firmly rooted in the post-bop tradition, while "Amy and Joseph" is a funky Pat Metheny-esque sentimental ballad, and "No Return" shows off organist Joey DeFrancesco's hitherto little-known skill on the trumpet. Sting even makes a brief but memorable appearance on a track entitled simply "English Jam." An extremely diverse album, THE PROMISE is a surprising listen all round. © cduniverse
