CD Reviews

The Best!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If I had to pick my favorite classical indian CD, this would be it. An extremely beautiful and powerful live performance, with ustad amjad ali khan and zakir hussain performing at the highest levels of virtuosity. Amjad Ali Khan not only plays strings of melodies at blazing speeds (somewhat of his trademark) but also creates intricate permutations on the main notes of the raga. His play is truly inspired. Zakir Hussain's tabla is both highly rythmnic and melodic as he increases both the intricacy and power of his play as the performance continues, culminating at one point with a rythmnic display that is so incredible that both the live audience and the listener are left in amazement. This is music, quite simply, at its ultimate best."
Totally out of this world!

"This recording is so pure and so impeccable in its sound, style, and sensibility. Zakir Hussain and Amjad Ali Khan play with their whole heart with tremendous energy that you can feel while you listen to this recording. You can even sense the chemistry between them while they play the ragas. Awesome performance of two musical geniuses!"
A very good CD

"I'm a big fan of Amjad Ali Khan and the first track (Rag Pilu/Kirwani) is superbly nuanced and moving. Zakir Hussain's controlled performance has all his flair without some of his flamboyance, so he complements Amjad's performance beautifully without stealing the show. I found the second track (Ragmala) somewhat disappointing, but perhaps that's because the first track is so good in comparison."
