John Mc Laughlin, Zakir Hussain, U. Shrinivas, V. Salvaganesh The Believer - Remember Shakti (2000)
(C) 2000 Universal Music SA france - (P) 2000 Glenray Trading B.V.\n------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------\nWhen Eastern classical musicians and Western jazz or pop musicians get together to jam, the result \nare always heartwarming; two wildly disparate traditions coming together to make music is such an \nirresistible gesture of human unity and cross-cultural cooperation. What's not to love? Frankly, \nwhat's not to love is often the music itself, which all too frequently is long on multicultural good \nintentions and short on things like coherence, interest, and hooks. The intermittently mystical jazz \nguitarist John McLaughlin, who has been nursing an India jones for decades now, is hardly \ninnocent of such offenses. But on The Believer, a live set featuring McLaughlin, electric mandolinist \nU. Shrinivas, kanjira and ghatam player V. Slevaganesh, and legendary tabla player Zakir Hussain, \nhe delivers a gloriously tight, rhythmically thrilling program of original compositions (as well as one \ncontribution each from Shrinivas and Hussain). The group is called Remember Shakti in reference to \nShakti, the similarly configured band that McLaughlin co-led in the mid-'70s. If anything, his playing \nhas grown more exciting than it was then; listening to him negotiate the thorny rhythmic changes of \nthis music in unison with Shrinivas and to both of them bouncing off the complexly woven rhythmic \npatterns laid out by Hussain and Slevaganesh is not only impressive, but uplifting as well. Highlights \ninclude the downright funky "Anna" and Shrinivas' composition "Maya." Very highly recommended. \n------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------\nArtists :\n\nJohn Mc Laughlin : Guitar\nZakir Hussain : Tabla\nU.
