Fusion Jazz/Rock That Sticks....
John Mclaughlin takes his legendary, high energy sound into the realm of mystical music in this classic album from the seventies. A master at improvisational guitar, Mclaughlin brings a heady Eastern taste to this presentation of Shakti. Long out-of-print, don't miss this chance to own it!

the last of Shakti's 70's albums
More of the exotic acoustic "World-fusion" of John McLaughlin and Shakti. A bit more forceful playing, like the band's first album, but like all of them, in the high caliber of musician-ship and quality. As the title to this review says, this was the last album this band would release in the 1970's together.

Should be the definition of "accessible"
Yep, this makes "Indian music" as accessible as it can be - without removing its essence (OK, raga purists may not agree, but....). Shakti, John Mclauglin's Indian-inspired group (which includes violinist L. Shankar ) released 3 albums before disbanding in the early 80s. "Natural Elements" is the one that western ears is likely to find least "foreign." Yet, this in no way should be taken to mean that the musicians have compromised. What results is a infectious and almost-perfect blend of musics from different cultures (and musical notations, too). Just try not to tap your feet to "Get Down and Sruti!" This piece cooks along with vocals, tabla and guitar trading phrases in a dizzying display of musicians clearly delighted in what they are doing. This is followed by the mellow and heart-breaking "Peace of Mind." There is not a false note to be found in the entire collection. If you are looking for music to challenge, reward, entertain and amaze, this is IT!
