An Outstanding Moment In Music
Gordon Kyd | Sydney, NSW Australia | 05/09/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Trilok Gurtu and his band The Glimpse shine on this album with such a successful marriage of tradition Indian and modern contempary jazz fusion. There is no cliche here just pure talent, ingenious composition, rich melody, heart, soul and a stella performance of some of the world greatest musicians (although to most mainstream listeners they would be unknowns). Kathak is a must have for any lover of music that enjoys multi-layered, complex and diverse world music that is driven by mind blowing grooves and sublime bass playing. All of this rich rhythm is surrounded by an array of tradition Indian instuments and vocal performances: the end result is a sound never to be heard in this way previously or since. Gurtu's follow up album 'African Fantasy' is also brilliant, although takes a more mellow tact, blending in African music and is far less intense than 'Kathak'.

'Kathak' is really a musician's feast with displays of speed, feel and melody from all performers involved that would burn and bury anyone but the best at their craft.

Gurtu's percussive display is astonishing but it is the collaboration and accompaniment??of musicians such as Kai Eckhardt de Camargo on bass that open the musical doors to audience's that would not normally venture to cultural music such as Tradition Indian without such a beautiful transition (such as this album).

'Kathak' is on a whole other evolutionary step from most music made and has enriched my life deeply.

Music from ALL FOUR CORNERS OF THE EARTH!! AMAZING!

"Trilok Gurtu, what else do I need to say? A drummer easily up to par with John McLauglin (John McLaughlin Trio) works again with his Trio mate Kai Eckhardt from Africa and Germany along with members from India and Italy.... I saw these magnificent players on September 6 at Seattle's Bumbershoot. This is a truely unique combination, influenced by such diverse acts as the Mahavishnu Orchestra to Dave Matthews and Bela Fleck, just to name a few. Not buying this album is just as well as cheating yourself of...well anything."
