Noshir Mody "Stories From The Years Of Living Passionately"
Self-taught Bombay guitarist Noshir Mody has assembled a magnificent array of musicians to record a deeply personal, sonically rich and beautifully produced album. The touch of all the lead instruments: guitar, piano then soprano sax on 'Beckoned By Mercury' is astonishing but better is still to come in the centrepiece of the album, the 17 minute long 'India' in which the subtlest of lead lines are brought alive by the telepathic interplay between double bass and drums/percussion. This one track is worth the price of admission alone but there are four others to enjoy. Noshir's influences come from Indian classical music, Al Di Meola, Pat Metheny and rock and he has groups called the EthniFusion Rock Ensemble and the EthniFusion Jazz Ensemble.
