Album Notes
This is the follow up album to "Sweet Blue Thornless Rose". I had used a cheap sitar that I had bought on a whim on-line but that I loved to death with a wah to mask the "amateur" sound that it had. I had also added two more frets using tongue depressors to help the instrument to adjust and be in tune. I had bought a pick up to help boost the sound, but I soon found out that the pick-up picked up more noise than sound from the sitar. However with the positive reviews I got from the first album I decided to bite the bullet and buy a professional sitar with everything I needed. That included 24 frets installed from the shop and an internal pick-up. So in this album I not only used a sitar that was built to my specifications but I also ventured out and tried my hand at putting together the Indian classical music feel with western instruments. So on several tracks there are orchestrations that can be performed with a string orchestra (due to my financial situation I had to use computer simulated sounds as opposed to real violins, violas, etc). There are also Flamenco influenced tracks. I also play the guitar so this was a way for me to show my other talents, specially as far as acoustic styles, mainly flamenco and some folk. One other very special thing about the album is the last track "jJAnabodhnI" which features a middle eastern percussion section and me improvising on a melody I developed while making the album. All in all, this album has more fusions of styles than I have ever recorded. This is the direction I intend to go in order to push the boundaries of "what you are not supposed to do".
