Customer Review

on 8 August 2008
In my opinion,quite simply the best indo-jazz fusion album around.Having listened to recent albums by The Teak project,Miles from India,Mukta, Indian Core and many more - this is the album that really tops them all. Led by clarinetist himself Arun Ghosh, he has created an album of creative,spiritual and very beautiful music.Using fourteen different musicians in many different lineups is, i feel, one of the albums strengths because every tune has a completely different feel to it."O amar..." and "Come closer" are quite serene and beautiful with the latter having a fantastic string backing with a gentle funky/Indo groove laid over the top."Aurora" and "Longsight Lagoon" are different prospects altogether with a more traditional Indian feel to them but the passionate solos from Ghosh himself and Idris Rahman on tenor sax give the music a creative jazz element."Uterine" is very spiritual with the simple but dominant base riff ,Ghosh's mystical sounding clarinet weaving it's magic and added depth from Rahman's saxophone making this possibly the pick of the album.Ghosh and rahman combine superbly again for the final track "Greenhouse" which i could best describe as a funky middle eastern flavoured piece.There are too many high points to mention in one review so the best way is to check it out yourself.Quite simply a stunning debut album and for all those fans of Indo/jazz, from Mayer and Harriott, through McClaughlin and Shakti, right up to the present day with the Teak project, this album is, quite simply the BEST.Buy now.
