Mahavishnu Orchestra: A Lotus on Irish Streams

"A Lotus on Irish Streams" features McLaughlin on acoustic guitar, Jerry Goodman on violin and Jan Hammer on piano. With the previous cut from The Inner Mounting Flame, "The Noonward Race," still bouncing against the walls inside the listener's head, along comes this serene, classically influenced excursion. A fluttering cascade of delicate notes produces a tender melody. Sounding amazingly close to New Age music, 10 years before New Age became a recognized entity, it is distinguished from it by high-level musicianship and lack of fragility.
