Album Notes
The 13 original compositions on this album were written and recorded between July and September of 2013 in Concord Mass.
There are 10 pieces that are played lap style, using Dobro, Weissenborn and 22 string Chaturangui, and Indian slide guitar designed by Debashish Bhattacharya. "Hijaz Samsara", "Farewell, Last Heath Hen" and "Brahma Viharas" are Oud solos
(tracks 4,8, 11) the last two of which are improvisations. All of the pieces are recorded live with no overdubs, excepting the last track on the album "Let Go of the Day, Every Day Let Go" which combines resonator guitar with Duduk, both played by me although not at the same time. These compositions are my humble attempt to combine some of the music I love so much, including but not limited to: Indian Raga, Arabic and Turkish Maqamat theory and American blues and folk….and to reflect back in my own small way the incredible light and love of people all over the world who have shared their incredible music with me. I hope that this music brings you happiness, peace, love, and healing. thank you for listening~ lloyd Thayer
