At the tail end of 2016, Jimmy Herring and John McLaughlin announced a joint tour dubbed Meeting Of The Spirits. Jimmy Herring—the exceptional guitarist of Widespread Panic, Aquarium Rescue Unit, Allman Brothers Band, Phil Lesh & Friends, The Dead, Jazz Is Dead, and more—brought a new project, Jimmy Herring and The Invisible Whip on the road with him, while McLaughlin, the famed English guitarist and bandleader, performed music from Mahavishnu Orchestra days with his band, The 4th Dimension.With the expansive tour getting multiple extensions due to demand, each night, both musicians and their respective ensembles began by performing sets individually before finishing off the show with a collaborative, improvisational finale. Heralded as one of the finer tours to grace stages in 2017, fans can remember the “Meeting Of The Spirits” tour with a brand-new live album, Live In San Francisco. Recorded at the tour’s December 8th, 2017 stop at San Francisco’s famed Warfield Theatre, the album was originally set for a September 21st release, but has been shared early, much to the excitement of fans. As John McLaughlin noted in a statement when the live album was announced, “This recording of the final set at the Warfield Theatre brings to full circle the amazing advent of The Mahavishnu Orchestra in 1971, and its renaissance on this night in San Francisco.”Added Herring, “Playing these timeless compositions with John and The Fourth Dimension was a life-changing experience!”John McLaughlin-Jimmy Herring – Live In San Francisco – Teaser Video[Video: Abstract Logix]Below, you can stream the album’s first of eight tracks, “Meeting of the Spirits”, and order your copy of Live In San Francisco now via Bandcamp:McLaughlin-Herring – “Meeting of the Spirits” – Live In San Francisco<a href=”http://mclaughlin-herring.bandcamp.com/album/live-in-san-francisco”>Live in San Francisco by McLaughlin-Herring</a>

Montevideo: Bolivia has formally expressed interest in joining a South American bid to host the 2030 FIFA World Cup, which will mark the centenary of football’s showpiece tournament.Bolivian sports minister Tito Montano presented his country’s request to be added to a candidacy involving Argentina, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay on Wednesday.“We have submitted the motion to be part of the candidacy for the 2030 World Cup and we hope that it can be accepted,” Montano told reporters after a meeting of the bid’s organising committee in the Uruguayan city of Maldonado. He added that Bolivian President Evo Morales had already outlined the proposal in a letter sent to the presidents of the other nations.South American bid coordinator Fernando Marin said the organising committee held “cordial discussions” with Bolivian officials earlier on Wednesday. But he said any decision on whether to include Bolivia in the candidacy would depend on the corresponding “heads of state”.The announcement came less than a week after Chile became the fourth country to be added to the candidacy. Argentina and Uruguay originally announced a wish to host the event two years ago before Paraguay was added to the bid in October 2017.Chile staged the World Cup in 1962 and the last time the competition was held in South America was in Brazil five years ago.Argentina hosted it in 1978 while Uruguay have not held the quadrennial event since the inaugural edition in 1930. Paraguay and Bolivia are aiming to be hosts for the first time. The South American effort faces competition from a British-Irish bid and a group comprising Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia.

Former Black Stars defender Lee Addy has revealed that the Ghanaian Embassy in Ethiopia is demanding an amount of two thousand US dollars to evacuate he and a number of his colleagues who ply their trade there.“We have made contact with the Ghanaian embassy here and the only thing they are telling us is that we should pay two thousand dollars so that they can put us in a cargo plane.They say unless we do that there is nothing that can be done about our situation,” he explained.The players numbering more than ten have been left stranded as a result of Ghana’s borders remaining closed as a measure of preventing the importation of the Coronavirus pandemic.The players have been stuck in Ethiopia for close to two months following the decision of the Ethiopian football federation to cancel 2019/2020 league season on May 5, 2020.The Ghanaian footballers are desperate to return to Ghana and have made a desperate call on government to evacuate them as they have been left stranded in the East African country.Aside Lee Addy, the other players faced with the crisis include Muntari Tagoe, Yakubu Mohammed, Abdul Latif Mohammed, Fuseini Nuhu, Alhassan Nuhu, Rahim Osumanu, Aaron Amoah, Edwin Frimpong Manso, Osei Mawuli among a host of others.In a video that has since gone viral Muntari Tagoe passionately outlined their current status.“We beg the government, we are footballers and now our season has been cancelled.“Our teams have sorted us out and we have also squandered all the money with have for food and rent.“On the 30th our rent will also expire.“We have our own return tickets, we are not asking anyone to do anything extraordinary for us.“We beg the officials to come to our aid to rescue us because after our resident permit expires that will further complicate the situation.” he stated.According to the players other countries are evacuating their citizens and want the Ghanaian government to do same for them.
