ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
IN HIGH PLACES

Presumably, that is what the Beatles meant, all those years ago, when they were singing, Get back to where you once belong. It was never a song about immigrants, it was about one´s individual inner evolution, one´s inner search, one´s own thing. Got to get back there, man.
They´re never a geographic, a physical, location, high places, but Inner states. Just as space music was never about science fiction, but about opening inner spaces via sound, via music. Outside phenomena are an illusion, it is said. Our brothers and sisters from academia will argue: Why, we can measure stuff, and calculate it, do something about it, and use it for purposes, how can it be unreal? True, but it will change: once, and by the most devious of manipulations, you have created the most ideal society, a new generation will come, and they will ruthlessly discard, or perhaps ignore, your thing. That´s when one withdraws, one goes back where one belongs. High places are accompanied by a mood, the mood is one of gratitude, and yes, devotion. The mood, to me, isn´t very much different from falling in love. D´you remember it? That beautiful girl, that sweet boy you fell for then, but who, after time, may not have proved worthy, as it turned out later. But the feeling, the feeling was real.
Sounds give me highs. My instrument sings to me, and for me. There is always that magic moment when it starts doing that, the subtle nuance within the tendril, within the paisley pattern of sound. That thing you can´t fake or manipulate. It works of its own accord, so to speak. And it does not compromise. Split second adjustments don´t make it. To become aware of the stale aftertaste when you´ve accepted things on face value which started to sound wrong, somewhere along the way: That´s your test.

When I compose tracks, I use leftovers from high places I´ve been, where one has found solace and (dare I utter the word?) access to the heart. And then I begin with an idea, a concept. But I will immediately discard it, when that magic moment occurs. And then The Sound wants something from me. Not just anything, but something specific – something special. If that magic moment doesn´t occur, then I won´t use the track. Vilayat Khan the great soul of music, in the 20th century, who´s magic hands made me humble and grateful in an instant. I worshipped those hands for decades. He presented it to me: the Venus Principle: to make something of beauty in any given circumstance, to cook something tasty even from the most unlikely ingredients.

Review by Chris Spector, Midwest Record
AL GROMER KHAN/In High Places: Inspired by Beatles singing get back to where you once belonged, Khan takes his musical trip back to jump, back to his roots when the cosmos existed only in his head. Expanding from that inner space, this is no mere hippy dippy noodling. This is some finely wrought sounds and soundscapes that guide you down the inner path to a place where consciousness exists in it’s own time zone. Beyond new age, beyond ambient, this is from whence it all comes from. Well done.

5.0 out of 5 starsCalligraphic Ambient Music With Indian Fragnance And a Bit of Tennessee Sound
3 August 2019
Very early in the morning you are watching the clouds on the mountains in the distance... Or clouds on the horizon of prairie. Or the domes and the minarets in the morning haze...
Calligraphic sounds of the sitar, electronic ambient background, slow rhythmic patterns of the percussion... There are some new colors in the Oriental ambient sound palette of Al Gromer Khan. Musicians from the band Country Roots.
You can hear violin and keyboards are playing in the style of classical piano ("Solace at Chateau Blue") or in the style of Hammond organ ("Future Sound of Tennessee"). There are moments that will intrigue you: whether the sitar sounds like a Blues chords of guitar strings or whether it's just country musicians are playing Blues.
Perhaps it's most accessible for the listeners album by Al Gromer Khan in the last years. Listening is relaxing and soothing.
Al Gromer Khan successfully conducts his dialogue with the listener and time stops. There are moments when sitar falls silent, there are only light sounds of keyboards or keyboards with drums, and gradually you are beginning to forget that you listening to the music, it becomes a part of your sound ambience and then the album is over.
Highlights from the album -"The Other Khan", "Silent Kings", "Future U", "Future Sound of Тennessee".
