Album Review
Don Farrell
Reviewed 2010-04-05 
Indian Classical music from the musical ambassador of India. from the notes:
recorded at peaks of his creativity they include several very rare
full-length performances, previously unreleased on CD & from the notes:
“Thousands of Ragas have come into being with new ones still being created.
All of them are associated with different times of day and night, seasons, and
ceremonial occasions. They all have an individual and principal mood such as
tranquility, loneliness, eroticism, heroism, etc., and the performer is
encouraged to give his own interpretation.” All tracks****
