Product Description

After his highly praised recording Blue Incantation (featuring Jerry Garcia), guitarist Sanjay Mishra's newest album brings his music together with the best in percussion from the East and West. Along with jazz/funk drum legend Dennis Chambers, Sanjay once again weaves an enticing web of World Music with his distinctive guitar sound, backed by electric bass, percussion and more.

This instrumental CD will appeal to a broad base of listeners including fans of rock, jazz and World Music. Included is the beautifully poignant instrumental version of the Beatles' classic Norwegian Wood.

About the Artist

Guitarist-composer Sanjay Mishra has been described as a brilliant and innovative musician. Born in India and residing in the United States, Sanjay plays with an eclecticism well suited to his multicultural background. After completing his studies at The Peabody Conservatory of Music, he began composing music that combined Eastern and Western influences. In an interview with The Washington Post, he explains

"I come from a tradition that has a lot of improvisation. Sometimes Western classical music can seem a little rigid, I had to find some middle ground."

Sanjay came to public acclaim with his highly praised recording "BLUE INCANTATION" (RYKODISC/AKAR 1995) with Grateful Dead guitarist JERRY GARCIA. This was one of Mr. Garcia's rare side collaborations in his later years and among his last musical efforts.

Sanjay's music can be heard on his latest recording RESCUE released May, 2000. Joining Sanjay are renowned percussionists

DENNIS CHAMBERS on drums and SAMIR CHATTERJEE on the tabla (Indian drum).

Other recordings include the soundtrack to the award winning film "PORT DJEMA." ("BEST ORIGINAL SCORE" HAMPTONS INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL1997, "SILVER BEAR" BERLIN FILM FESTIVAL.) Produced by Paradis FilmsParis, France. Soundtrack released on POLYGRAM-PHILIPS (1997), and "THE CROSSING." (Akar-1993) Sanjay has also appeared on many compilations such as DEEP ORIENT from Melodia Records.

These four CDs offer instrumentals that combine global musical influences in a style that has earned Sanjay praise from rock, pop, folk, jazz, and world music audiences.
