John McLaughlin discusses his long, exploratory career in the new issue of Uncut, dated November 2014 and out now.



The pioneering jazz guitarist recalls his time playing with Miles Davis, Jack Bruce, Carlos Santana, Paco De Lucia and his own Mahavishnu Orchestra, as well as his jam with Jimi Hendrix at Electric Lady Studios.

“A lot of the music they call jazz [today], I wouldn’t give it the time of day,” McLaughlin tells Uncut.

“It’s as shallow as a teacup. Or a saucer! It’s pathetic, it’s really a shame. I want blood on the floor.”

The new issue of Uncut is out now.
