Mahavishnu Orchestra - Visions of the Emerald Beyond (1994) Retail CD
'Visions of the Emerald Beyond' was made by a new lineup of the orchestra, with only front man John McLaughlin remaining from the original band that stunned its seventies audiences. Amongst the new performers were veteran jazz violinist Jean-Luc Ponty and drummer Michael Walden, who was brought on for the difficult task of succeeding original drummer Billy Cobham. Unlike previous Mahavishnu albums, there are some vocals on 'Visions' sung by several of the instrumentalists. On the whole I think that the purely instrumental tunes are the better ones, with 'Lila's Dance' and 'Pastoral' standingmore… out in particular. McLaughlin's guitar outbursts on the former are incredible. The latter is a beautiful acoustic composition which boasts some breathtaking violin solos, and is my favourite on the album, (not least because I am a violin player myself). The only down-point is that a few of the songs aren't so well-written, although in every case the actual instrument playing is inspired. 'Visions of the Emerald Beyond' contains an amazing mix of jazz and rock, some lightning-fast guitar playing, and is one of the most original albums you're ever likely to hear.
