Diamond Dust – It’s That TimeMark Lawrence – Guitar John Paul Gard – Hammond Organ Marco Anderson – Drums “This is not some nostalgia trip. This is not retro. This is contemporary hard-driving instrumental music sporting its own id… Diamond Dust is how a 21st century power trio should sound” – Walter Kolosky, Author of the books Power, Passion and Beauty: The Story of the Legendary Mahavishnu Orchestra and Follow Your Heart- John McLaughlin song by song.
Formed in 2012, Diamond Dust is a dynamic and energetic organ trio in the mould of Tony Williams Lifetime which featured Blue Note keyboard maestro Larry Young, proto guitar legend John McLaughlin and Williams himself. The band plays electric music from this exciting era when such greats as Miles Davis fused jazz and psychedelic rock, sparking a revolution in music which led to the formation of Tony Williams Lifetime, John McLaughlin’s Mahavishnu Orchestra and many others.
The repertoire is powerful, electric and groovy and features many of the key TWL tracks from their ground breaking LPs ‘Emergency’ and ‘Turn It Over’, together with music from McLaughlin’s album ‘Devotion’, as well as some of his later compositions.
