Meeting for the first time, maverick guitarist Cooder and Hindustani virtuoso Bhatt improvised these four subtle, beautiful instrumentals. Both play slide guitar, with Cooder on bluesy bottleneck and Bhatt playing his own invention, the Mohan veena, which provides keening, almost vocal sounds on the slowly unfolding title track. The music literally goes all over the map, with Cooder laying Mississippi Delta licks over an Indian-styled raga. The elegant finale, "Isa Lei," shows their intuitive connection—two instrumental voices merging into one.
Only one cut? - Where is the rest?
Disappointed that the entire album is not available on iTunes. Why is only one cut available?
Easy Meets West
Once again, Ry Cooder collaborates with a world music star and delivers innovative, improvised music. Ry listens, reflects, and creates, without dominating or taking centre stage. Highly recommended!
