Format: Audio CD
This is a perfect blend of Mieko Miazaki's extraordinary koto, Nguyen Le's funky euro/Vietnamese guitar inventions and Prabu Eduard's prodigious tabla playing. It is an effortless amalgam of world music cultures finding a common ground focused by Nguyen Le's clear vision of a 21st century music that is not limited by the African/European traditions alone, but also encompasses a meeting with the eastern and far eastern world. The result is enchanting, mind boggling, state of the art composition and improvisation that will surprise and beguile the listener. At once familiar and exotic, this album has earned more spins over the past year than just about anything else I own. Seeing them live with Rudresh Mahattaba last week was the icing on the cake-breathtaking. This is the future of jazz, or at least one face of it. Not to be missed.

Nguyên Lê, whose guitars can mimic the Vietnamese zither, the dan tranh, is a world jazz artist who can play straight jazz and fusion, and here he joins Indian bansuri master Hariprasad Chaurasia, koto and shamisen performer Mieko Miyazaki, and percussionist Prabhu Edouard in an outstanding Asian-jazz exposition. A Journey to the West, the English translation of the album's title, is a true fusion of musical idioms. Miniature tone poems, each piece captures a mood or image, with improvisational borrowings of some traditional melodies. Some vocal additions are heard, not as songs but as embellishment and rhythmic emphasis. From a lullaby to bright dance pieces to melancholic reflections, this is an usual, masterly recording that can appeal both to world music and jazz fans. Others have attemped such explorations, but Nguyên Lê succeeds brilliantly. A fair comparison of albums in his discography is folly, as the styles, artists, and themes all differ; still, I must regard this album as his most uniformly developed and achieved, thus far [including his 2011 opus Songs of Freedom]. Each track is a unique journey.

Great music, and nicely recorded. For those who have seen them play live though, this can't help but fall short. Not because it is not a great record, but because nothing can really come close to that electric passion these musicians display live on stage. This remains, however, a must have for anyone interested in fusion Jazz. Works best on a good stereo of course, if you don't get all the intricacies of sound you miss out, but it works as casual feel good music as well. Highly recommended.
