Review by Evolver
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Crossover & JazzRock/Fusion Teams
3 stars I really quite enjoy John McLaughlin's guitar playing, and L. Shankar's violin, but I find the raga used as the basis of Shakti's music makes this a tedious listen. Sure, their playing is spectacular, and the rhythm players are very adept, and fat enough to keep up with the two soloists, but the droning, sinle chord jamming, especially when it goes on for fifteen minutes or more, gets tiresome.

This collection, taken from the two original Shakti albums, plus their first live record, pretty much captures all you need to know about the band. The solos are fast and furious. The players are virtuosos. But the music does not transport.

I will say that the one departure, Happiness Is Being Together, a latin jazz piece, does provide a bit of diversion by this group.
