Product Description

NEW Combo BLUWAVS CD and FLAC FILE

Amazon.com

This disc is a celebration of the common ground found between musicians on opposite sides of the globe. Canadian slide guitarist Doug Cox and Indian mohan veena player Salil Bhatt recorded Slide to Freedom in Nashville along with tabla player Ramkumar Mishra. Bhatt is a tenth-generation musician and his father, V.M. Bhatt, not only invented the 19-stringed instrument his son plays but also guests on two of the tacks. Cox plays a range of resonator instruments: dobro, National Steel guitar, and others, as well as stepping up to the mic for a couple vocals. The elder Bhatt has similarly teamed up with Ry Cooder, Jerry Douglas, Béla Fleck, and Taj Mahal on previous projects. This cross-culture pairing is an exhilarating blend of ragas and Delta blues forms. Never forced, Slide to Freedom is a bracing and inviting hybrid, flowing as naturally as the waters that connect distant lands to one another. --David Greenberger

Format: Audio CD
Love this CD..some great East meets West stuff here. It alternates between western blues-based pieces and eastern/Indian-based pieces. These guys are masters of their respective instruments and the dobro blends naturally with the Indian slide guitar and Indian percussion. This sounds like a loose, fun session rather than a strictly polished and produced performance--real guys playing real music and improvising together--the way music is supposed to be!

This is an amazing CD, blending east and west. You will love the slide guitar, all the other instruments too numerous to mention and the virtuosity of this pair of musicians. I listen to this all the time.
