5.0 out of 5 stars Intense individual and interpersonal musicianship, November 26, 2002
By 
Brett Newton (Palm Desert, CA United States) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Handful of Beauty (Audio CD)
This is simply a brilliant album. The interplay between the musicians on this album is very deep and intense. One of the most amazing and creative amalgams of jazz and Indian music. I have played this album for many people who wouldn't normally listen to East Indian music and they have been struck the same way. John McLaughlin's work on this album (with the specially made guitar that has tapered, or carved-out, frets to allow very sitar-like bends and a set of strings running diagonally across the body of the guitar to simulate the sympathetic strings underneath a sitar) is dazzling. Before I heard this, I had no idea that you could play an acoustic guitar like that! Beautifully recorded, this album is highly recommened to anyone.

Beautiful album.a handful of beauty indeed......John at the absolute height of his powers..never quite reaching such a peak of creativity again ,great though a lot of his works are
Saw Shakti perform this music in the '70's and for me was one of the most stunning performances ever!
A Handful of Beauty?......most certainly.......so grab yourself a handful now before this gem disappears into the vaults at Sony
