Concert du Maurier Ltée 15e Anniversaire

John McLaughlin et Free Spirits, Paco de Lucia Septet, Milton Nascimento et ses musiciens
The Festival is marking its 15th edition by initiating the Miles Davis Award, which each year will be awarded to an international jazz musician in recognition of a body of work and of creative contribution to regeneration in the jazz domain.

The first recipient is none other than John McLaughlin, who on his first visit will be sharing the limelight with Paco de Lucia and Milton Nascimento. After sitting in on Miles's first electric sessions, McLaughlin would achieve true superstar status when his Mahavishnu Orchestra came to dominate the world of jazz fusion. Alternating between acoustic and electric, his experimentation has gone on tirelessly. Drummer Dennis Chambers and rising star of the organ Joey de Francesco round out Free Spirits, which will feature the master plugged in and certain to gratify.

Paco de Lucia, meanwhile, will have the hot winds of Andalusia with him. Placing his fabulous technique in the service of the passion, pride and despair of his people, this national monument of Spanish flamenco uses his ten fingers to spin an endlessly magic web. The trio he created with McLaughlin and Al Di Meola a few years back is still fresh in the memory.

And Milton Nascimento, finally, who managed to liberate an entire generation of Brazilian music from the confines of bossa nova, is virtually a mythical figure in his own country. His angelic, unusually placed voice once heard is never forgotten. One of the Festival's most cherished moments is the night in 1986 when Nascimento, with his unique and infinitely appealing style, was joined on stage by Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock and Pat Metheny.
