Shankar - Who's To Know Who's To Know
Indian Used - LP ECM-1-1195 ECM
1981 Gatefold Original Featuring Zakir Hussain, Umayalpuram K. Sivaram And V. Lakshminarayana. Silver Promo Stamp On The Cover. Appears Unplayed. “Having Already Established Himself As Member Of John Mclaughlin's Jazz And Indian Music Ensemble Shakti, Violinist L. Shankar Set Himself Up As A Virtuoso Leader In Contexts Ranging From Indian Classical Music To Modern Hybrids Featuring Synthesizers And Drum Machines. Through It All, He Brought The Unique Sound Of His Ten-String Double Violin (From An Original Design) To Dates Featuring The Likes Of Zakir Hussain, Frank Zappa, Peter Gabriel, And Steve Vai. For This 1980 Session, The Violinist Focuses On The Traditional Ragas Of His Native India, With Two Extended Pieces. Joined By Hussain On Tabla, Umayalpuram K. Sivaraman On Mridangam, And Conductor V. Lakshminarayana, Shankar Produces A Wealth Of Solo Climaxes While Weaving Myriad Thematic Improvisations. On The First Raga (Both Pieces Here Are Reconfigurations Of Traditional Ragas), He Moves From A Meditative Solo Stretch To Some Frenetic Interplay With Hussein, Eventually Ending The Piece With An Incredible, Lightening-Fast Display Of Technique. The Group Opt For A More Even-Keeled Pace On The Second Raga. Shankar Is Impressive Again, While Hussein Makes The Best Of Some Lengthy Solo Spots. An Essential Disc For L. Shankar Fans.” Stephen Cook, AMG.... more details
 
Shankar - Song For Everyone Song For Everyone
Jazz New - LP 25016 ECM
Sealed 1985 Original Featuring Jan Garbarek, Zakir Hussain And Trilok Gurtu. Pressed On 100% Pure Virgin Vinyl. Looks Unplayed. “Song For Everyone Heralds The Return Of The Groove In Shankar's East-West-Minded Music, With Former Shakti Colleague Zakir Hussain On Tabla, Trilok Gurtu On Percussion, And Shankar's Own Manipulation Of A Drum Machine Tending To The Rhythms. The Result Is A Brighter, More Outgoing Record Than Its Predecessor Vision, Veering Between Western Acoustic And Electric Grooves And The Complex Beats Churned Out By The Tabla. Jan Garbarek Again Shines Beams Of Light On Soprano And Tenor, Engaging Shankar's 10-String Double-Necked Electric Violin In Some Complex Interplay On The Title Track. Some Tracks Are Driven Entirely Or Partially By The Drum Machine; "Paper Nut" Has A Particularly Infectious Revolving Pattern. On Another Track, "I Know," The Western Percussion Is Gradually Swallowed Up By The Indian Tabla. Fascinating, Free-Thinking Music, Beautifully Recorded As Usual By ECM.” Richard S. Ginell, AMG.... more details
 
Shankar - Soul Searcher Soul Searcher
Indian New - LP 539 871 Axiom
Sealed 1990 Vinyl Rarity Featuring Peter Gabriel, Zakir Hussain And Others. First Copy We Have Seen In Four Years. Small Saw Notch. “Though Rooted In The Traditions Of North Indian Classical Music, This Album Adds A Subtle Modern Twist That Makes It More Digestible To Western Ears. Soul Searcher Consists Of One 50-Minute Track That Swells And Recedes, Evolving Into An Epic Composition Of Almost Otherworldly Beauty. The Music Combines All The Common Elements Of Traditional Indian Music — Syncopated Tabla Rhythms, Droning Tamboura, Dazzling Vocals — With Shankar's Breathtaking Violin Melodies, Then Adds Keyboards Courtesy Of Peter Gabriel, Who Featured The Violinist's Talents Prominently On Passion. Indian Music Has Always Had An Influence Over Western Rock & Roll Bands, From The Beatles And Rolling Stones To Monster Magnet, And Soul Searcher Is A Wonderfully Accessible Introduction For Newcomers Looking To Delve Into The Genre.” Bret Love, All Music Guide.... more details
