On THE PROMISE, John McLaughlin fuses together a variety of sessions that highlight his rich musical eclecticism. Tracks such as "Jazz Jungle" are all-out virtuoso jams that exalt the technical prowess of McLaughlin, drummer Dennis Chambers, and tenor saxophonist Michael Brecker.

"Django" is a rock-inflected jazz waltz featuring Jeff Beck on guitar. "Thelonious Melodius" is much more firmly rooted in the post-bop tradition, while "Amy and Joseph" is a funky Pat Metheny-esque sentimental ballad, and "No Return" shows off organist Joey DeFrancesco's hitherto little-known skill on the trumpet. Sting even makes a brief but memorable appearance on a track entitled simply "English Jam." An extremely diverse album, THE PROMISE is a surprising listen all round.
