After the dissolution of the One Truth Band, McLaughlin toured in a guitar duo with Christian Escoudé. The Translators included McLaughlin's future wife, classical keyboardist, Katia Labèque. It was recorded in 1988 with Michael Tilson Thomas conducting the London Symphony Orchestra. Unlike what is typical practice in classical music, the concerto includes sections where McLaughlin improvises.

McLaughlin's primary influence to my ear is not the obvious Rodrigo, but Aaron Copland. McLaughlin's compositional style here often features sweeping grandiose crescendos, giving much of the piece an epic movie soundtrack feel. The first movement, Rhythmic is easily the best, rivalling the last movement of Keith Emerson's piano concerto for energetic orchestration. The second movement, Slow & Sad, defies it's title with a cool Stravinsky-like diversion toward the en. .
Micheal Tilson Thomas conducted the London Symphony Orchestra as he had for Apocalypse fourteen years earlier. This concerto is nothing like Apocalypse and nothing like jazz.

The Duchess of Cambridge also wore a pussy bow blouse during an engagement in south London in March. This time the garment was purple and from Gucci. To complete her look for Archie's christening today Kate added a red headband by London milliner Juliette Botterill. The Duchess of Cambridge particularly caught our attention in her pussybow dress, which appears to be another royal repeat. You'd have to be an expert in Kate's style to remember this one though! She was pictured wearing this Stella McCartney number way back in 2009 for Prince Philip’s 90th birthday dinner, and again at Christmas last year. We love the fact that Kate is making the most of timeless classics like this number and think that this style of dress is an absolute must-have.
