Reviewed 2005-04-25
A spectacular collection of 14 short pieces performed by one of the greatest legends of Hindustani vocal music. Most of the recordings here are from the pre-1940s era and have been restored beautifully. There are no gimmicks in Faiyaz Khan's music- only artistic purity and creative genius. A terrific compilation.

**Track 1: Mid tempo, the pace accelerates and vocal acrobatics take over as the track progresses.

Track 2: Slow to mid tempo, Lilting and resonant.

Track 3: Slow to mid tempo, Folksy and poignant.

**Track 4: Midtempo, Playful, vocals soar between high and low octaves

Track 5: Slow to midtempo, Swaying and dreamy.

Track 6: Slow to midtempo, Entreating and romantic.

Track 7: Midtempo with fast vocal yodeling towards the end. Grainy track.

**Track 8: Slow/mid tempo, evocative of the wind.

Track 9: Mid to fast tempo, Exquisite and melodic.

Track 10: Fast tempo, Passionate.

**Track 11: Fast tempo, rapid fire singing as a disciple echoes Khan's phrases

Track 12: Slow tempo, Lovely and dreamy.

Track 13: slow start followed by fast recitation of vocal syllables

Track 14: Mid tempo, Pleasant and tender.
