5.0 out of 5 stars possibly the best Real World recording, 14 Oct 2008

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan: Shahbaaz (Audio CD)
The opening piece is about Al-Hallaj the Sufi who was martyred on the cross. Not only is the music infectious and the rhythm and singing ecstatic but the song is about one of the greatest Muslim Sufi Mystics, the man who was so God-intoxicated he claimed 'I am God', 'I am the truth'. The orthodoxy of the day found this talk heretical and promptly had him crucified.

Then the last track: Jewleh Lal
Perhaps the best Qawwali piece I have ever heard. It has an intoxicating rhythm and musical structure and the improvisations move the ensemble to such a climax that you feel yourself lifting up towards the heavens.

Don't miss out the opportunity of picking this up.

5.0 out of 5 stars This album is one of Nusrat's best pieces of work., 13 May 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan: Shahbaaz (Audio CD)
A nice album in all, the beauty being the third track, Dhyahar-Eh-Ishq Meh, which has a wonderful, alive rhythm. Jewleh Lal has a nice, alive soaring beat, as does the energetic Shahbaaz Qalandar.
Want my advice, this is a must for all Nusrat fans, the only downer is the amount of romantic tracks in this CD. I believe that if Nusrat had sung Akhiyan Udeek Diyan or Sanoon Ik Pal Chan or even Yeh jo Halka Halka Sarur He, this would have been his best album ever. Another downer is that he never carried out any of these songs live (except for Shahbaaz Qalandar).
Otherwise-----THIS IS A MUST FOR ALL QAWWALLI LOVERS!
