For Floating Point, which was recorded in India, McLaughlin used several of the best Indian musicians in the world. "Now while this CD features predominantly Indian musicians, we are in quite another form compared to the group Shakti," McLaughlin says. "The music is for the most part ‘Jazz-Fusion’ if a label has to be put on it. But with the musicians involved in this project, it has also a ‘world’ kind of atmosphere."
