One of the best fusion albums ever done
Murari | Ames, IA USA | 04/20/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is one of the best fusion albums ever done, the blending of jazz and carnatic in this one is simply superb and is a pioneering work with some of the top names in the field. It kind of gave a framework for a different feel and structure to fusion pieces (others like shakti were also excellent but a different flavour) The pieces have a good carnatic raga scale and superimposed jazz rythms over classical talas (beat cycles). But the best blend of the jazz/carnatic rythms were done in spanish wave, which is earlier than this album. Both the violinists are brilliant and in the paganini caprice piece, its almost impossible to find any trace of india classical style in the violin playing although dr. subramaniam had played it. Every piece in this is a classic."
One of LSubs best works
chikku | Seattle, WA USA | 11/25/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is definitely one of LSubs best works. His East-West fusion style and his use of the violin as the lead instrument is very soothing and melodious. Would highly recommend this CD for anyone looking for a more jazzy style rather than a classical violin style."
Understanding Fusion
Seshadri Veeraraghavan | Houston, Texas USA | 11/24/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Contrary to what puritans would think, I believe that Fusion music has immense potential, to unite the world in rhythms and textures of ordinary vibrations transformed into something blessed, by the hands of Masters like the (late) Stephane G. and Subramaniam L. This album will not only help you understand the nuances and subtleties of Carnatic music, but also realize that blending of musical styles leads to inspired contemplation, and not confusion. Buy it."
