Sunday, November 20, 2011

Western musicians continue to turn their ears to the East for inspiration. The sonorities and moods of Indian music have had a particular influence ever since George Harrison first heard Ravi Shankar. David Garland presents recordings new and old by musicians exploring the paths that unite East and West, including a new collaboration between Jesse Sparhawk and Eric Carbonara, a classic recording by Bill Evans and Herbie Mann, and music by Nils Frahm, The Stone Poneys, Clem Alford, and Ravi Shankar himself.
