Mahavishnu Orchestra. The Inner Mounting Flame. This is the album that made John McLaughlin a semi-household name, a furious, high-energy, yet rigorously conceived meeting of virtuosos that, for all intents and purposes, defined the fusion of jazz and rock a year after Miles Davis' Bitches Brew breakthrough. It also inadvertently led to the derogatory connotation of the word fusion, for it paved the way for an army of imitators, many of whose excesses and commercial panderings devalued the entire movement.
When The Mahavishnu Orchestra's debut album appeared in 1971, jazz-rock fusion was still a revolutionary idea. guitar demon John McLaughlin and . drummer Billy Cobham took the ideas they'd absorbed (and helped initiate) working on the Big Bang of fusion, Miles Davis' Bitches Brew; they expanded them into a more (but band-based) format. They were helped in this endeavor by jazz bassist Rick Laird, violinist Jerry Goodman, and burgeoning keyboard phenom Jan Hammer.

The Inner Mounting Flame was the first album which totally captured the power of hard rock and the freewheeling improvisational aspects of jazz. Larry Coryell, Miles Davis, and Tony Williams' Lifetime had tried something like this with some success in previous years. It was no mistake McLaughlin was attached to all three of those efforts. But none of that output captured the spirit like the Mahavishnu Orchestra's 1971 recording The Inner Mounting Flame. Who were these guys anyway? John McLaughlin was an up and coming European jazz guitarist who recently had been best known for some far-out playing with Miles. Soon he would become a guitar god. Billy Cobham was an ex-marching band drummer from Panama who had played with the great Horace Silver and in the important band Dreams. The Inner Mounting Flame (with John McLaughlin), 2012.
