Lovely fresh version of a McLaughlin classic. I hear that Jimmy Herring is one of McLaughlin's favourite guitarists, so a nice nod in the other direction.... I also hear that Herring is a stalwart of the Southern Jam Rock scene, hanging out with The Allman Brothers, Derek Trucks, Phil Lesh, et al. Check him out, you hungry Guitar Kidlets!!
