Fresh out of college in the mid-60's but still studying privately in Paris, Philip Glass lamented he didn't have enough exposure to world music- until he met Ravi Shankar, that is. The two immediately hit it off, resulting in a lasting friendship that led to their album together called Passages, in 1990. Although they have very distinctive and unique styles, we can hear the friends practically completing each other's sentences- musically speaking- in perfect tandem. Tonight we hear Ragas in a Minor Scale. Also, music of Phil Kline and Leos Janacek
