Review by Sean Trane
3 stars Give it another halfstar. This album is another venture into Indian Classical music mixing in their typical jazz-rock music. But in this one , the guests are not too intrusive and most of the playing is done by the trio. Apart from two relatively long pieces on Indian percussions , one cannot say that this album is Indian influenced more than the Akasha albums. Additional input from longtime friend Van Dormael and regular guest Ducret are also discreet but the overall feeling on this album is IMHO yet another Aka Moon album.

Still well worth a listen.

3 stars I've to admit, on the first spin this album did not do too much to me, maybe because I'm not that fascinated by traditional Indian music in general. But I changed my opinion, after I listened to it by headphones in a quiet moment. It's quite an interesting one actually and I like the parts with percussion. My favourite song is "Birds Talk To You", but I find as well the percussion solo in "The Grace Of Vishnu" great. I think this band is quite worthwhile for checking out, if you are deeply into jazz fusion. 3,5 stars for this one!
