Album Notes
A 2008, 2009, & 2010 recipient of the ASCAPlus Award in the Jazz and Popular Division, Manisha Shahane is bridging hemispheres with her second album. Shahane brings over a decade of experience as a performing songwriter to this project featuring her as a singer, songwriter, pianist, composer, arranger and co-producer, working alongside Daniel Cantor. Cantor recently added African Underground Vol.1 (Nomadic Wax) and a cut for In the Name of Love: Africa Salutes U2 (Shout Factory) to his numerous production credits. When Parallel Lines Meet showcases an array of instrumentation resulting in “music of this universe,” a lyric that Shahane penned for the album’s opening track, titled “Girls Gone World.”

Exceptional performances are delivered by Brahim Fribgane (oud), Mark Simcox (cello), Kevin Barry (lap steel guitar), Chris Brenne (guitar), George Ruckert (sarod), Iyeoka Ivie Okoawo (spoken word), and Akili Jamal Haynes (trumpet, bass clarinet, trombone). Returning from Shahane’s Peace in Progress album (2004) are Blake Newman (upright bass), Jerry Leake (tabla/multi-percussion), and Dominique Gagne (flute). Members of her Los Angeles-based trio are also introduced, as are the voices of children.

Release date: April 16, 2010

“The whole album is actually pulling you towards worldly beats and experiences...There is a sense of authenticity and clear-headed approach in her story telling and singing which tends to touch your inner spirits...Manisha Shahane comes across as a naturally gifted talent with a very compassionate and loving heart...her music is fresh, uncluttered and right from the heart with a true universal vibe to it.”

"If I had to describe the styles or influences that I can hear - Alison Krauss meets folk, jazz, Indian classical, and even a bit of rock. These styles all blend beautifully and honestly, and that same honesty carries through in the spiritual and sometimes political themes in the lyrics. Production on the album is superb. I'm sure a huge amount time and care has gone into the composition, arrangements and the recording of this album and it certainly has paid off. In a time where so many people have home studios and are able to program and record albums in isolation, it is a breath of fresh air to hear real musicians, playing real instruments on real songs!"
