Meandering freely . . .

Today is the birthday of John McLaughlin (born 4 January, 1942), jazz fusion guitarist and composer.

"Only in spontaneity can we be who we truly are." - John McLaughlin

"The mathematics of rhythm are universal. They don't belong to any particular culture." - John McLaughlin

"The moment you start to talk about playing music, you destroy music. It cannot be talked about. It can only be played, enjoyed and listened to." - John McLaughlin

"You can have the greatest player in terms of mastering an instrument and you could be yawning your head off when you hear them. So, it's not what you do, but the way you're doing it and in the end that's all that we have." - John McLaughlin
