CD Reviews

Outstanding - The music of a true musical genius
J. Sheth | Brooklyn, NY USA | 10/06/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In the first CD of the four volume "Signature" series, Ustad Ali Akbar Khan manages to weave together delicacy, introspection and musical genius into all three tracks. Chandranandan, is the most beautiful of all three tracks, which begins slowly and delicately, gently working its way towards an amazing culmination where melody and rhythm flow together seamlessly into an astounding and frenetic conclusion - an ending reminiscent of the startling beauty of a full moon night, to which the title owes its name. If there is one CD in the world you'll ever own, it should be this one."
Very serious Hindustani classical music.
J. Sheth | 04/29/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Definitely four or five star. One of Ustad Ali Akbar's Khans finest music. In this series, Vol 3 (esp. Raga Mallika) is the best. Another CD that I would recommend is Ragas Ravi Shankar, Ali Akbar Khan."
One of the definative sarod records
J. Sheth | 05/28/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Ustad Ali Akbar Khan is one of the all time sarod legends. This four disc series makes it incredibly obvious why. If I could only have one set of Hindustani recordings, these four discs would be the ones. I just can't bring myself to rate any of them less than 5 stars. Get them all, you won't be sorry."
