Facing East

Facing East

 

In this follow up recording, John Wuddenhorst (basuri flute) again teams up with Facing East, including Subash Chandran, Ganesh Kumar, Steve Zerlin and Jorge Zamorano, to blend his own visions of Western and Eastern styles. When listening you will easily hear the influences of Shakti and John McLaughlin, as track number three is even dedicated to John. The compositions on the recording are all original thanks to Wuddenhorst and take influence mostly from Indian classical with helpings of Western classical and jazz. The interplay is very fluent on the album and you can tell that these musicians play very well together and in the pocket. There is much room for interpretation and improvising as you can hear in the many solos taken throughout the recording. This recording brought on a roller coaster of feelings when listening to it and its spiritual nature is very seamless and constant throughout. If you are a listener of world music and are as fascinated as we are about the coming together of Eastern and Western music, this is a must have.
