Trilok's Tasty Treats
Gary A. Koeneman | Pahoa, Hawaii United States | 01/21/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is acoustic music at it's finest,cookin' throughtout. Simmering grooves to burning blasts,this is the real meal,tasty as the best Shakti or Oregon. The compositions of Gurtu and pianist Andy Ember are superb,full of space and movement. Especially awesome are the chant and wordless vocal arrangements, integral to the progression of the music,not just melodically and harmonically, but often rhythmically as well. There is a breathing, building,(definative?), cover of Ornette Coleman's Law Years, that can only be described as perfect. The excellent acoustic bass work of Lars Danielson must be acknowledged, as well as the angular, yet propulsive trumpet of Paolu Fresu and the masterful guitar and gnaoua of Jay Deva. To quote from the tone pome contained in The Glimpse:"The Music was flowing Deeply in his Soul"... Trilok is one of our finest musicians and composers and The Glimpse is a must-have masterpiece . Buy it now!"

"Variety, innovation, sound of the world. All of these and much more can be found on Glimpse. Trilok plays hard. So do the musicians invited for this session. Use of variety of acoustic instruments gives true natural feeling as opposed to many nowadays' programmed-drum recordings. You travel through a number of places, each constructed to the last detail. Enjoyable though not so easy understandable recording from the true master of percussion."

"This is a mind boggling array of music I would rate this easily amongst the top 5 CD's in my collection (of about 500 CD's at this point in time). Trilok plays drums like no one I've ever heard (or seen). He makes the percussion a lead instrument that adds another dimension to this music. I can't recommend this album enough."
