2013 marks the 40th anniversary of the tumultuous break-up of the greatest band that ever was, the Mahavishnu Orchestra. The group, founded by British guitarist John McLaughlin, was the first to fuse jazz, rock and world music into critical and commercial success. In a remarkable feat, its pure instrumental albums were able to find their way into the Top 20 of the Billboard rock charts. The 2013 Special Edition eBook Power, Passion and Beauty – The Story of the Legendary Mahavishnu Orchestra is the updated version of Walter Kolosky’s critically acclaimed work first published in 2006. Many have called that book The Bible of the Mahavishnu Orchestra and the jazz-rock fusion movement. The Special Edition eBook is brand new to those who have not read the original print version of this riveting story. For those that have, however, many new anecdotes, insights, opinions, and an extra chapter updating the story of Mahavishnu have been added. From the original book hear from Herbie Hancock, Joe Zawinul, Pat Metheny, Sir George Martin, Jeff Beck, all of the original Mahavishnu members and almost 150 other music giants. This time around, Carlos Santana, Chick Corea, Steve Howe, Carmine Appice, and many other noted artists, producers, audio engineers and spiritual travelers add to the legend that is the Mahavishnu Orchestra. The 2013 Special Edition eBook Power, Passion and Beauty also has dedicated web pages that will offer more rare images, news and information. The eBook is available in all eBook formats.
