Synopsis

Album Description
The merging of Eastern and Western tonalities is the obvious point of focus but much more important and somewhat below surface if the deliverance of a true American soundtrack of deep tangled roots, flashes of erased origins, hidden meanings and long gone dreams.The mysterious majestic sonorities of India meet the slow rustic lope of an almost country atmosphere, a rural Mid Western sensibility.

CD Reviews

Billboard Magazine Review Jan. 2000
06/01/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"BILL LASWELL Hear No Evil Hear No Evil originally released in 1988, marked one of the truly world fusion creations. The original CD is remastered, and a second full length CD of two extended mix translations were created especially for Meta Records. "To realize Hear No Evil, bassist/super-producer Bill Laswell tapped a group of world-class musicians. The divergent virtuosity of such aces as violinist L. Shankar, guitarist Nicky Skopelitis, and percussionist Aiyb Dieng blend seamlessly under the leader's acute sense of direction. 'Assassin' hints of near-Eastern desolation á la Led Zeppelin's 'Kashmir,' but most of the album follows the rustic grooves of 'Lost Roads'....the second coming of Hear No Evil' is all good..." -Billboard Magazine, Jan. 2000"
