Format: Audio CD
I have had the pleasure of meeting both Terry and his son Gyan Riley several times socially. They are both very open and unpretentious musicians. Terry Riley is, of course, one of the great innovative composers of the 20th century starting with the likes of "In C" and "Rainbow in Curved Air". But his development as a composer owes a great deal to his study of Raga singing under the great Pandit Pran Nath. His work is deeply connected to Hindustani music and philosophy.

Gyan Riley is a virtuoso guitarist with several albums under his belt already and an adventurous spirit in his compositions and his performance choices. He does not seem to feel in the least eclipsed or overshadowed by the work and fame of his father. Rather he is an accomplished musician in his own right who is happy to collaborate with his father.

And collaborate they do, in a most delightful fashion. They share arrangements of each others' music. There is no sense of competition, rather there is pleasure and satisfaction in collaboration. I saw this show live at Yoshi's in Oakland and the shared joy of performance was palpable. I believe that this genial tone comes across in this well-recorded album.

Terry Riley plays piano and sings at times. Gyan Riley plays his guitars (he is an amazing guitarist). And their performance together exemplifies the best of ecstatic and collaborative potentials of music. The end result is a very listenable concert that begs to be heard again.

Terry Riley seems to have grasped something of the cosmic significance of music through his studies over the years and he also appears to have passed on some of those learned lessons to the next generation. And Gyan Riley carries on the tradition with joy and energy. This is a fantastic album.
