SHAKTI WITH JOHN MCLAUGHLIN : MIND ECOLOGY [NATURAL ELEMENTS, 1977]

Από ένα κλασικό fusion άλμπουμ των ‘70s, το τρίτο που ο John McLaughlin κυκλοφόρησε με τους Shakti [Zakir Hussain – κρουστά, L Shankar – βιόλα, βιολί, Vikku Vinayakram – κρουστά] διαλέγουμε το εναρκτήριο κομμάτι. Η μουσική σε παρασέρνει σαν ορμητικό ρεύμα. Η λέξη “συγκλονιστικό” ακούγεται ανάρμοστα φορτισμένη, δύσκολο όμως και να την αποφύγεις.

From a classic fusion album of the ’70s, the third that
John McLaughlin released with Shakti [Zakir Hussain – percussion, L Shankar – viola, violin, Vikku Vinayakram – percussion] we choose the opening track. The music carries you away like a rushing stream. The word “shocking” sounds inappropriately charged, although it’s hard to avoid it.

      These guys are out of this world. Or…deep into it, in ways unimaginable to us.
      Thank you!

    I have this album, but have not listened to it for years, if not decades. Listening to it now, each turn of the music sounds completely familiar to me. I think I heard this a lot during my school days. Thanks for reminding me.
