listening to…April 30 – May 5, 2013

51ioyb+cA7L._SX300_Debashish Bhattacharya – Beyond the Ragasphere (Riverboat/World Music Network)

The latest from Hindustani slide guitar virtuoso Debashish Bhattacharya. I got hip to his nimble guitar work through his Raga Bhimpalasi on the India Archive label in the late ’90s. This album is a little less traditional, featuring guest appearances by jazz guitarist John McLaughlin and Bluegrass Dobro guitarist Jerry Douglas. There’s something very special about the way he transfers the extremely ornamented traditions of North Indian Classical music to a Western instrument even though there’s been Indian slide guitarists in the past like Brij Bhushan Kabra and Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhatt.

John Stowell and Steve Brown – Cross Roads (CDBY)

Fine guitar duets! I’m such a big fan of John Stowell and I love hearing him in this context.

Bill Evans and Jim Hall – Undercurrent (Blue Note)
Craig Taborn – Light Made Lighter (Thirsty Ear)
Keith Jarrett and Charlie Haden – Jasmine (ECM)
Ed Bickert – Out of the Past (Sackville)
