JAI UTTAL, BEN LEINBACH & MANOSE: YOGA JOYS & OTHER DELIGHTS Jai Uttal is a pioneer of world fusion whose first album,
Footprints, set a standard for east-west fusion when it was released
in 1991. Since then, the San Francisco based musician has played
rave-up jam band eat west music with his Pagan Love Orchestra
and more meditative sounds based on his Kirtan singing of Hindi
mantras. Recently he's been working with multi-instrumentalist
Ben Leinbach and Nepalese flute player Manose. They have a CD
called Music for Yoga and other Joys. Jai Uttal, Ben Leinbach
and Manose talk about yoga trance and dance.
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH RADHIKA MILLER Radhika Miller was a flutist following the traditional classical
path when she began meditating and discovered Indian music. That
sent her off in a new musical direction that has found her creating
a classical world fusion. She's released dozens of solo albums,
including her recent CD, HEAVEN, and she appears on the best selling
Celtic Twilight collection. In her Marin County home, Radhika
Miller and pianist/percussionist Tony D'Anna engage in a contemplative
dialogue in music.
HUZUR NAWAZ: LABYRINTHS Before adopting the Sufi name of Huzur Nawaz, he was known
as Stephen Coughlin, releasing his first album, SONG OF THE REED
under that name in the 1980s. Since then, he's been exploring
a sound that travels from San Francisco's Grace Cathedral to Sufi
meditations, playing his Indian bansuri flute as well as his soprano
saxophone. In his home in Central California, Huzur Nawaz talks
about unfolding the sound of his albums, HUZUR THE PRESENCE (Coughlin)
and his collaboration on MYSTERIES by Musica Divina (Musica Divina).
BT: THE SOUL OF A MONSTER BT a.k.a. Brian Transeau, is a darling of the dance floor,
and is responsible for a genre called techno-trance. But the
electronic composer's music has always been deeper and more multi-faceted
than that. You can hear his emotional range on the soundtrack
to MONSTER, a harrowing film portrait of Aileen Wuornos, a street
prostitute who was executed for killing seven men in Florida during
the 1980s. Her life was horrible, but BT finds a soul in her
world, revealed in minimalist cycles, ambient atmospheres and
a touch of ambient Americana. BT talks about his score to Monster.
