Ali Akbar Khan ,signature series volume 2

An amazing recording. Ali Akbar Khan was, as far as I'm concerned, the greatest Indian musician of the 20th century. This is another one of the albums that was recorded by a company called connoisseur society back in the 60s, and it should be compulsory listening for anybody who is interested in the music of India and wants to hear what somebody on the level of Bach sounds like playing Indian music. It's a whole different experience of Indian music, and if you've never experienced the genius of Ali Akbar Khan, you owe it to yourself to hear this. Several times.

A Tempest of Tunefulness

I have been watching this album for a year now and I cannot believe that it has gone without comment. There seems to be no shortage of Classical Indian fans on iTunes, which baffles me even further. If anyone is searching for one album to add to their collection as representative of either sarode music or Ali Akbar Khan, I would recommend this one. Medhavi alone is worth the purchase. Ustad Khan's father game him the title "Emperor of Melody" - these ragas demonstrate why.
