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.
