Album Review

World fusion/jazz group falls short of its great potential. With guitar star John Mclaughlin. ~ Michael G. Nastos, Rovi

Making Music

From a familiar setting I have the privelage to know Zakir and was given Making Music as a cassette years ago by a mutual friend. What an absolute delight to have found it again on iTunes. Thank heavens as very track makes the heart sore!

World "Jazz" classic

This is a supergroup album. Zakir Hussain: classically trained Indian tabla player; John McLaughlin: jazz guitar master; Hariprasad Chaurasia: classically trained Indian flutist; and Jan Garbarek: Danish "european jazz" horn player. And this supergroup album, I believes, lives up to its potential. The music can't be classified, which is befitting of such a diverse group. World jazz? Of course, the musicianship is top-notch. Please note that this is an ECM record, THE record label for inventive, forward-looking, improvisational music. Known for their high-quality recordings, ECM did somehow mess up on this record. Its one failing is that it isn't mixed properly. Jan Garbarek's horns are WAY too loud in the mix. Despite the poor mix, I love this album!

Making Music Indeed

Simply one of the most beautiful recordings ever made. A secret, small gem beloved by musicians of
all backgrounds. The music played here is an expression of love. Nothing more can I say.
