Totally love it, two maestros in their best form. Wish they had more such albums.
Mesmerizing... easily one of the greatest albums of it's genre!
Ali Akbar Khan, Signature Series Vol. 4
This one of the great recordings by Ali Akbar Khan, one of the greatest Sarod Players of all time (second only to his father, Ustad Allauddin Khan, the teacher of some the greatest musicians of India, including Ravi Shanker). Nikhil Banerjee, the accompanist is also very well known and is also a student of Ustad Allauddin Khan. They have known each other a long time and played together for years. I had an occasion to hear Ustad Ali Akbar Khan play Raga Mishra Mand at the University of Minnesota a long time back (in the 1960s). The memory of that concert and this particular Raga is still fresh (40 years later). That is how powerful his mastery is and how remarkable this recording is.
