FEATURES FOR THE WEEK
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH HUZUR NAWAZ (STEPHEN COUGHLIN) 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 Gothic cathedrals to Sufi meditations,
playing his Indian bansuri flute as well as his soprano saxophone.
In his home in Central California, Huzur Nawaz gathers a group
of singers and players to unfold the sound of his albums, HUZUR
THE PRESENCE (Coughlin) and his collaboration on MYSTERIES by
Musica Divina (Musica Divina).
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH JAI UTTAL AND BEN LEINBACH Jai Uttal is a pioneer of world fusion whose last appearance
on Echoes was in 1991. He's a scholar of Indian music, especially
the stringed instrument called the dotar and the singing style
called Kirtan. His latest album is MUSIC FOR YOGA AND OTHER JOYS
(Sounds True Records). He teams up with multi-instrumentalist
Ben Leinbach, and Nepalese bansuri flute player, Manose, in a
series of serene improvisations, meditations and chants, recorded
live in Jai's Marin County, California living room.
