5.0 out of 5 stars Two thumbs up!!! June 20, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Very nice album and very original!!! I have Praful's first CD and between two they are very different. Don't take my word for it, listen to Amazon.com samples. If you don't like new age music this would not be your cup of tea. I enjoy this kind of music; it's very relaxing, smooth and very creative. Praful does a very good job playing sax along with mixing in some new age stuff. I was very surprised after I read some of the reviews!? Unfortunately, this kind of music misunderstood often. Before you buy it listen to the samples. I got this CD because I heard a song from this album on the radio, "Moon Glide", which is fantastic stuff. My advice to you, don't read reviews listen to it yourself and judge it for yourself, everybody's tastes are different. I give it 5 stars!!!

It took a couple of listens, but I really enjoy the new Praful

release "Pyramid In Your Backyard". It is a nice mix of Smooth

Jazz and Electronica, along with elements of World Music with

Indian and Brazilian overtones. The vocals are nice, especially

"Eternity" and "Naked". This CD will not be for everyone, but

if you are looking for a nice blend of interesting music, I

would recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've been absorbed July 18, 2006
Format:Audio CD
How did he do this?

Here is an intriguing blend of jazz, indian, brazilian, middle east, (etc!), with Praful's incredible sax play. I am discovering this CD over and over again. Praful's first CD is good, no doubt. In my opinion, this one is more creative and engaging. Now that I've said that, I need to listen again to his first CD.

You won't be disappointed. Give it a try. Don't stop until you've heard the last track...the sax is great and I've just replayed it 3 times.

Review by Alex Henderson

To some electronica enthusiasts, it might seem like a contraction to describe Praful as a saxophonist who has some relevance to electronica. If electronica is all about synthesizers, drum machines, sequencers, samplers, and the like, how can a saxman possibly have any relevance to electronica? Isn't "saxophone electronica" sort of like kosher pork or vegetarian sausage? But electronica doesn't have to be 100 percent electronic - it can involve a combination of electronic programming and real instruments (and often does). Besides, Praful never claimed to be an electronica purist - actually, it is difficult to say exactly how Pyramid in Your Backyard should be categorized. It's probably best to describe this 2005 release as a hybrid mixture of electronic club/dance grooves (including trip-hop, chillout, and ambient), pop-jazz, and world music. Of course, world music is a very broad, far-reaching term - and on Pyramid in Your Backyard, it means everything from Indian, Arabic, and Middle Eastern music to Brazilian samba. This is a largely instrumental CD, but if Praful (who plays guitar, keyboards, and the Indian bansuri flute in addition to his tenor and soprano sax) is essentially an instrumentalist, he is an instrumentalist who isn't afraid to feature the occasional vocalist when it is appropriate - including himself. Praful does much more playing than singing, but he does sing lead on the moody "Naked." Pyramid in Your Backyard is not a perfect CD; some of the tunes are more successful than others. But the disc has more ups than downs - and the fact that Praful is hard to pigeonhole is a definite plus.

Enjoyed this album. I would give 5 stars to the previous Praful album "One Day Deep", which is even better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pyramid In Your Back Yard~PRAFUL February 15, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This Is A Good CD. I Think Its A Bit Better And Refined From His Other CD, One Day Deep. This CD Is Not For A Smooth Jazz Lover, But Rather For Those That Like To Straddle The Fence And Delve Into A Little Bit Of Everything Music Wise. There Are Some Very Good Cuts On This CD. Try The Sample Bar And Give A Listen!
