Sarod player and composer Bhargav Mistry – the composer behind the band “Shivoham” (listen to the sublime and austere “Shankara”Shankara and the lush, grandiose “Shanti Mantras”Shanti mantras (Peace Mantras)), takes here a break to enjoy a carefree handling of his sarod in Cool Jazz mode, inviting us to a pleasurable Easy Listening session.
This Indian Fusion project came as a breath of fresh air for jazz composer and multi-instrumentalist Corrado Rossi who composes regularly for film and television and whose style reveals a great kinship with Eric Serra’s soundtrack of the 80’s Le Grand Bleu – (Big Blue which was also film director Luc Besson’s first international blockbuster) – and adds a cinematic quality to Mistry’s sarod blues.
These tracks, entirely composed and recorded via Internet, are bright and carefree and illustrate the lifestyle of modern urban India. They could make a great sound score for images of contemporary India. (from Amazon review: read more)
