Album Review

Murgai, Neel – “Neel Murgai Ensemble” – [Innova/American Composers]

Cousin Mary   1/15/2010   CD, Jazz

Compositions that are improvised during performance show influence of Indian music and jazz with Murgai on sitar, daf, and throat singing plus Mat Maneri on viola, Sameer Gupta on tabla and Greg Heffernan on cello. Lush sonority and radiance, nice beats at times with dramatic buildup that is characteristic of a raga. Unusual and accessible, a global village you can hear.
