On June 2, 2012 at the Alfa Jazz Fest in Lviv, I interviewed guitarist John McLaughlin for the Ukrainian magazine, Counterpoint. Just before he had to leave for sound check, I pulled out my camera and shot this excerpt of John talking about In a Silent Way and the recordings that changed his life. Here is his insightful, unedited answer. Complete transcribed interview is here: http://larryappelbaum.wordpress.com/2013/04/05/interview-with-john-mclaughlin-pt-1/
