Guitar virtuoso John McLaughlin has been cranking away on his forthcoming CD, working at various facilities with fellow greats such as Michael Brecker, Bill Evans, Ada Rovatti and Eric Johnson. Recently, he stopped by the Cutting Room (New York City) for percussion and guitar overdubs. Percussionist Zakir Hussain strolled in with a set of tablas, and drummer Dennis Chambers brought a kit that included six toms. Engineer Chris Griffin says that McLaughlin incorporated MIDI with his signature complex riffs. “He pulled up stock synths in Logic Audio, then used that to trigger, along with his audio,” Griffin says. “He sent me MIDI through his Roland rig — then just went to town.”
