"It is late morning, quiet, and you are filled with resolve, spiritual or mundane. This album is the soundtrack. Morning Visions is actually part of the Signature Series, without that category name, because it includes Mahapurush Misra on tabla and was recorded as part of the audiophile Connoisseur Society series of 1963 to 1974. This remastered edition presents, first, rag Mian-ki Todi, an old imperial composition. Ali Akbar Khan spends 20 minutes on the alap, a rhythm-free improvisation without drum, and even then the track is slightly truncated. The music is profound and passionate. The second track continues the performance with Misra propelling the music to its fast and strong conclusion. The last track is rag Sindhu Bhairavi, always associated with the morning. Its mood is more active and ends with a driving gat as a call for action. These are brilliant performances by supreme masters of the art."
